An ugly dodge! It all depends on clientele and image as to which way you want to go.

What would it have been if you bought it from a Dodge dealer?
Some squirrel will be pissed!

Very good. Thanks so much for the infor. I am thinking about trading my two small vans in for a big one. Did you go personal credit or business credit?
YES...I understand them to be a bunch of pr&%ks that turn their backs on customers the second the warranty expires and lie through their teeth about product defects. Hence the class action suit(s)

Financed through MB.  Gave me a pretty good deal of 1.9% at the time but didn't really matter.  The van met all of my expectations and my customer's complimented me on my beautiful work van.

If you can, I would recommend researching them and special order one for yourself.  I looked at the dealer's inventory and they only had vans that were for fleet purchases and were practically barebones.  I special ordered mine to have a lot of the stuff already built into the van since it's cheaper than to buy the parts after the purchase.  You will definitely be doing yourself a favor going that route. 

For my special order, I included the following:

Suspension seating for both driver and passenger.  They're really comfortable over those big speed bumps and highway dips.

The standard 4 cylinder engine/7spd transmission is really economical.  I average around 20 to 22 mpg city and highway.  I experimented and drove 60 mph for about 190 miles and got 29.61 mpg. 

Driver Efficiency Package which includes:  GPS Navigation System, Lockable glove box, Rear camera, fog lamps and cruise control

Trailer hitch package

Power/heated mirrors.  If you don't order this, you will get non powered mirrors.

Auxiliary battery so I can add a 1500 watt inverter to run my printer and add an outlet to heat up my steam machine while enroute to a frozen evaporator job.  This battery is my house battery and doesn't affect the main battery for the van so I can literally run this battery down and still be able to drive away. 

Total cost MSRP  $44,745.00

I did a little comparison and for a couple thousand dollars less, I could get some of the same equipment in the Ford Transit van or the Dodge ProMax Van.  The reason I bought the Sprinter is because I had 2 previous Sprinters and sold them because their high mileage; and the Transit / ProMax had not come out yet so I didn't know how well they were going to be brand new.

The dealer was really cool and threw in the MB factory extended warranty for free in the purchase price so now it's covered for 125k miles or 6 years.

Hope this helps.

Wildimaginations, who did you finance the Benz from? MB personal, MB Commercial, or other?  Thinking about a bigger van

Thanks for all the input. I ended up purchasing a chevy express van, the price was right and had everything i was looking for besides the fuel economy so I grabbed it quick. Now just have to get it lettered up!
