"I have purchased this Dodge van used with only 6 months after it was bought from the dealer and still had warranty on it. From the get go I had a few problems that needed attention such as the side sliding door gasket pop out and hinder the door from closing properly unless slammed.
The lever for adjusting the seats is extended outward too much and that got broke twice, once under warranty.
Year 3rd had to replace a gas pipe. And worst of all problems was the computer box. The computer went bad after about 5 years showing engine and gauges lights on at first and then after further deterioration the vehicle would cease running. Had to replace the computer with a reputable shop. After about 3 years the replacement computer box went bad again. Replaced it at the Dodge dealership. Now past 2 years March 2015 and another computer problems which last time cost me about $800 to replace. I complained to Dodge and they replied with "we will forward this to our development department" and from there on started fanning my email with their Dodge commercials and deals.
This vehicle has a soft bed liner in the cargo area and the plastic threshold covers the floor bed where the back doors are is breaking down and not durable enough.
This vehicle is used for business and I took excellent care of it. Overall I am not a happy customer.
With the cargo lines I would highly recommend getting a reverse back camera and alert system for s"
Pros: "Great for long trips ( has bed in rear), curtains."
Cons: "Cannot make small circles"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"High top conversion van, TV and VCR in rear. Rear sound system, 5disc CD player in rear. Outlets to plug in earphones and games in rear. Rear seat electrically converts to bed. Cloth seats and carpet throughout. Cost over $36,000 new. Deluxe package. Mark III Red, running boards. Less than 50,000 original miles."
"Been an owner and operator of this vehicle since it was new. Used it for business hauling mostly light weight materials in a cargo van floor lining type of situation.
At few rare situations I exceeded the weight limit this vehicle can carry of over 1500 pounds and had a towing trailer weight almost 2 tons and the vehicle performed nicely. I have modified the breaks and break pads from the factory original.
Had to repair a few minor problems along the years of use such as fuel vapor pipe, computer went bad twice which is the bigger expense, and fuel pump. Under warranty I had to repair the passenger seat adjustment lever, side sliding door rubber gasket and other minor things. This is why I lowered my rating. Other then that the vehicle runs great. Good engine power for 5.2L. One annoying thing about this vehicle is the wide turns, can't make a full U-turn even in a 3 lane road. Love the freezing cold A/C even in hot desert environment works great."
"Second gear in automatic transmission went out at about 52,000 and I have never towed anything with it. Just changed the water pump and a brake line at 54,000. The right tail light gets water in it when it rains heavy and burns out the bulb. Abs sensor went out at 30,000. Body above running board is got a rust hole starting. Over all, I can drive it across the states with no major problems.( I hope)"

"Bought van used in 2012. Put new tires on and drove 10,000 miles including trip from Indiana to Wyoming and back. Very reliable. Drove many miles as a home healthcare specialist. Vehicle had conversion with captains chairs, etc. Loved the van. Steering started acting up and found massive rusting of frame."
