- Easy to get around town with
- Brake system is deplorable, no brake life, expesive.
The brakes on these vehicles is extremely poor, every time you need a brake job, 30,000 miles, you will also need 4 expensive rotors, there is 6 different brake shoes for these vans and the vin does not say what shoes it takes, also the transmission needs 1 more gear for driving on the interstate. The quality of design has been made to take all of your money to keep it running. At 30,000 my turbocharger also went bad. That is way to soon for a good quality turbo. (must be poor quality from the factory) The average Dodge dealer cannot work on these vans and if you have a Dodge the Freightliner people will not work on it for Warranty. (Another rip off) They leave you in bad situations. They need to lower the price or improve on quality. I am going to sell mine and get something reliable....read morehide

- Graet fuel economy 24-28 mpg. Lots of interier room. Very good wheelchair van platform.
- Bad rust below rearwindows,below door rail and mud flaps rubbed paint off and caused rust.
Cheaper buy and run for a wheelchair van than either a lowered floor and raised roof minivan or fullsized raised roof van. Sprinter only needs a lift installed. Easy to remove front seat so that I can roll in and lock down beside my driver. Removing 1 3 person seat for wheelchair access still leaves me a 7 passenger van.My only complaint as about the rust. All cars and pickups all go 10+ years without rust nowdays. Why shouldn't a sprinter' otherwise I love this van....read morehide

- Nice styling, good handling, long warranty, fuel economy, spacious & tall
- Better interior appointments, more standard features & twin sliding doors
Good size van that seats 10 people in comfort, with high ceiling for ease getting in and out, plus lot of space for luggage or cargo. Cool comfort with the optional rear airconditioning and heating. A tiptronic automatic transmission is standard which is good traveling in the mountains. The high visibility is helpful in traffic to see beyond the cars or trucks in front. Reliable Mercedes Benz 5 cylinder turbo diesel engine that has good torque to carry loads and inclines. Good 4 wheel disc brakes with ABS for panic stops and stability control to boot. I believe this van is better than the mini vans or the standard vans being sold in the U.S. in many aspects and I found the winner!...read morehide
