Thumbs up for the Sprinter's standard 3-point seatbelts and head restraints in all seating positions in the passenger models plus stability control standard on some trims since its inception. So, even a used Sprinter has some class-leading occupant safety features.
I'd be wary of an Express 1500 for a family without the ESC option available in the last few years. The high rollover risk and tip in the government test will be made worse by a full load of passengers
#10 of 18 Is this a good deal or not on a 2002 Dodge Grand Caravan w/ 68000 mi?

They will take our 1996 Plymouth Grand Voyager that is currently running fine for a trade in of $1500.00. According to Kelley Blue Book it's worth $2,650.00 as a trade in. They'll sell us the new to us 2002 for $9890 minus a trade in of $1500.00 and with tax, tags, fees the grand total is $9,086.00. We started out with the price of the van as $10,999.
This includes an "AS IS" purchase w/ 1 month, 1000 mile warranty w/ a 50/50 payment if something happens in this time frame. If we want to buy a warranty it'll be 3/36,000 for $1595.00 and covers many different things.
Would you purchase this or not?

Does anyone know which vehicles, if any, use the same V-6 diesel, V-6 gas, and transmission as the Sprinter? Would like a true 5-speed stick to be available with these little motors.

You've already got a used van so I don't see why you need another one. With all the rebates going on perhaps you should buy new?

I agree with minicoopers....You currently own a used van, your van runs well and you know it. WHY trade a van you know for a "pig in a poke"?
Once any vehicle gets 6 years old, there may be as many problems on it as one that is 20 years old.
