2008 Chrysler Aspen User Reviews

- Everything about the Chrysler Aspen is a PRO!!!
I have owned my Aspen for a year now ~ I have never had any problems with it whatsoever!
The interior is well put together and sturdy, the kids have their own heated seats which they LOVE in the winter. The leather seems to be strong & long lasting unlike other leather seats i've had in the past which crack & split over the years. I don't know if Chrysler would recomend it but I have washed all my floormats in my home wash machine & they come completely clean & back to new- The Aspen logo on them is white again!!
I have towed trailers loaded & empty with my Aspen & don't notice any difference from regular driving ~ no slowing, stopping, rear weight or tug feelings.
Drives awesome, corners comfortably without any tipping feeling.
The one thing I have noticed that I have never experienced with any other vehicle I have ever driven is that my Aspen will coast forever!!!!
On flat land, letting off the gas @ 50 MPH, it will gradually slow for atleast 1/2 mile before my speed will drop to 40MPH!! This could be considered a bad thing if you don't use it wisely because you could be on your brakes a lot. ~ I like to coast :)...read morehide

- Everything is great on this car. The best car I have ever owned, especically for the money!
- No cons whatsoever, I would recommend it to anybody.
We have owned this car for about a year and it is still as great as the day we bought it. The power is outstanding and although the mileage is just average, I knew what I was getting when we bought a Hemi. The ride is outstanding, the interior is outstanding, the kids love it and it has taken us all over for ice hockey and soccer tournaments. I highly recomend this vehicle to anyone looking for a great family hauler that will also get you great looks and comments. We must have had fifteen people ask us what kind of vehicle it was in the first two months we had it....read morehide

- Smooth ride; Excellent features
- Fuel Econony is not what is advertised. Leather is Spartan could be better quality
Overall happy with the vehicle. Purchased it with a Chrysler Greenslip from dealer in Franfort, IN. This is a Loaded Cool Vanilla SUV. Have all the options! A $43,000 MSRP picked it up for $35,200. Almost $8,000 off of retail.
Gas mileage is impossible to get over 11.5MPG.
That is the only fault. My wife liked the leather quality which was in her 2004 Pacifica. Its better quality. The 4 bucket seats(heated) with consoles frontand back is great. Rear DVD; Nav system all wonderful....read morehide

- smooth ride, excellent features, fair milage for larger suv
- more rear leg room
We recently purchased a 2008 aspen and we are very happy with our choice. A very smooth ride, all the features of the pricier suv's and mileage isn't too bad for a larger vehicle. Averaging 19 hwy.

- Price with all the extras
- Fuel economy isn't so great
Great SUV for the dollar. Nothing is lacking on the J package. Keep the RMP's down and your gas mileage won't go under what's quoted on the sticker. I've gotten multiple compliments on the style & color (cognac crystal). I wouldn't go back to my mini van or my compact SUV I had previously. And I didn't test drive anything better in the price range. In fact, most everything else couldn't even touch the Aspen for bells and whistles that come with it....read morehide

- Smooth ride, great features, easy on the eye
- fuel economy is around 14-15 mpg
I absolutely love this car. I have it in black with 20" chrome wheels. Great design. Suspension system is remarkable as is accelleration. I have the hemi so fuel economy is not great. This car has so much style and so many features at a very affordable price. Best SUV I have ever had and I have had 5....read morehide

- Easy on the wallet 'Escalade value', fun and smooth engine, GREAT looks (admiring stares), comfort
- gas mileage is expectedly average
I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Great fun driving it..very smooth, yet powerful. The size is just perfect for our family and dog on trips. I love to get it washed. What as Chrysler thinking waiting this long to introduce this version of the Durango?!

- This car has it all. I love the Bluetooth and overall look.
- I do not like how the car "brakes". Seems like I have to really push on them.
I have zero regreats in buying this car! It has every option imaginable, so I don't feel like i got jipped on anything. I got a fantastic deal on it as well...zero interest for 60 months!
When I drive this car, no joke, people actually stop me to ask about it. Just today I had 2 people approach me at the gas station to ask about it and complement. My boyfriend drives a new Escalade and he doesn't get that sort of treatment!
Mine is a Cool Vanilla Color with the bigger rims, so it's very sporty looking. The Bluetooth technology is so great also! I can talk on my cell phone right through the speakers, and it's very clear. The "My Gig" computer function is so cool. Well worth the price for the option, including Nav.
The ONLY negatives I can honestly say is that the leg room in the back is not the best, it seems like I really have to push the breaks when I want to stop, and obviously the gas mileage isn't wonderful (knew this going into it though).
HIGHLY recommend!...read morehide

- Great extras! Very well made! Loads of Room!
- Drives like a car, rides easy and runs as quiet as a mouse!
I love my new Aspen. Loaded with tons of extras, backup warning, power everything, satellite radio is a great feature, remote start and rear lift gate, folding and unfolding rear seats is a breeze, it's easy to get in and out of, climate control for each row of seats means no one has to freeze or sweat, it's a wonderful car and you can't beat the warranty or price!...read morehide
