Guide: 5=Perfect; 3=Good; 1=Poor
Pros: What do you like about your 2008 Dodge Sprinter?
Fit and Finish excellent, lots of unexpected features in a panel van.
Enough room to drive a small car into the back for a spare!
Doors easily fold entirely out of the way for loading in back. Very wide side door.
Fuel milage seems to be in the high teens in combined city/highway driving.
Remarkably nimble in parking lots and peppy engine acceleration onto the highway with a small (3 litre) diesel engine. My turbocharged Ford Powerstroke 7.3 litre is faster, but carries 1/4 as much in it's open bed and not as good on the gas milage. Mirrors are excellent for backing into confined areas.
Cons: How would you improve your 2008 Dodge Sprinter?
Outboard arm rests are at an awkward place and angle. Everything else is well thought out and / or available as an option. I am going to add a rear view camera for backing and hooking up trailer more quickly.
2008 Dodge Sprinter Review:
I don't replace vehicles very often. Use it up, wear it out make it do or do without. I am amazed at the safety features on this vehicle. I did not know why it handled and moved so well until well after the test drive. After reading about the various systems in play, it made sense. We have a fairly confined parking area, and this van (170" Extended and Hightop) is easy to back into our space with around 4 feet hanging over the sidewalk, the nose sticks out no further than any full size long bed pickup truck. If you can't hank the tail over the sidewalk, get the shorter vans.
