We researched several SUV's with certain options that we were looking for and we bought a FULLY loaded Aspen that we are very happy with. The ride and interior are plush, the 8 speaker Alpine system with subwoofer and 368 watt amp is powerful and crystal clear. We have the remote start, DVD Nav, Video entertainment, 20 inch chrome wheels, power liftgate, sunroof, towing package, etc. There was no other SUV on the market that could give us all that we have for the price.
The exterior is a matter of personal opinion. We think it looks great and with all the compliments we have gotten, we must be right. It is a great looking SUV. Let us not forget that the 300 was considered ugly too by "experts", and look at the sales of that car. We bought one of those too.

I just ordered a fully loaded Aspen today from my local dealer. I researched the heck out of all suvs for 3 solid months. On lux side, I've owned a Landcruiser, Porsche, tricked out Z71 suburban, and some very nice VWs. I've researched like crazy; considered the following:
Acura MDX (not crazy about new body style)
Mercedes Benz G320CDI (nice but just too darn expensive. I could buy one, but I just wont shell out that much for a car)
Lexus GX (no fold flat and it's a smaller version of my LandCruiser)
Acadia and Outlook (too pricey for what you get), and have decided to go with the ASPEN. It fits my needs best; family cruiser, 4x4, nice, lux. I want to keep this for a long time. My wife has a Pacifica which we really enjoy. We take it on trips everywhere and its great for the family. So...
I should have it by next week as it is coming from another dealers inventory. the bang for the buck factor is the clincher for me.

All big SUBs and trucks need big grills to cool off the big engines. I'd consider a minivan if they came with 4WD and could tow my 6,000 lb. camper over the moutain passes.
Somehow, the minor exterior changes vs. the Durango make it a nicer looking vehicle in my opinion. I have a 2002 Durango and will probably be buying a new Durango or Aspen this summer.

I just purchased one nice vehicle my only compliant is the back end jumps around over some bumps . The mileage isn't bad at all if you keep the R P Ms around two grand 20-22 mpg highway can be achieved . If you like the rumble of the exhaust and the sound of the HEMI you will have no problem getting single digit gas mileage.

I have a 2007 Aspen 2 weeks old and 420 miles on it and yesterday it cut off in the middle of the road failing to restart . I tried to do a vehicle systems check with no success the lights and radio worked .The ring around the D in drive disappeared . This is my first Chrysler product and last when you spend 40,000 plus you don't expect it break down after 2 weeks ,420 miles ,and still have TEMP tags on it.

Every state has LEMON LAWS, you should have 30-days to register a complaint with the state....it could entitle you to a new vehicle or money back...check it out.

I contacted a lemon lawyer in the state of Maryland and was told the dealer has 4 times to fix the problem or 30 days in the shop within 15 months or 15,000 miles . The vehicle was out of service for 17 days .Here is what really PISSED me off was i had 420 miles and a full tank of gas when it was towed in . I was told my vehicle was ready so I went to the dealership and waited for them to bring me my truck . I got in to find 1\2 tank of gas and 334 added miles put on my vehicle . The long and short i asked about my gas the excessive miles we had to do this ensure the problem was fix and can't reimburse you for your gas . The Front Control Module was the problem .

Our 2007 Aspen shutdown on the highway going 70 m.p.h. on us. We freaked out! Luckily, it did re-start and we found the next exit had a dealership. They put it on diagnostics and the code for an exhaust leak came up. It passed every leak test they had and when asked what the issue was then, the reply I got from the service manager was " It must just have a glitch". A GLITCH??? 70 on the highway?? A GLITCH you tell me? Thank got we are alive to tell about it and ask that you stop buying products from Chrysler.

Jul 24, 2013 (6:09 pm)
hi. I have a 2008 aspen wit the hemi and a 3.92 differential ratio. I have the tow package because it came with the car but I will not be towing anything. Does anyone know what will happen if I try to lower the differential ratio down to something like 3.0 (or even lower) I am trying to do something about the horrible gas mileage. any other suggestions will also be appreciated. thanks
