Default Re: Please include Geographic Location in Title & SELLER REMINDER LIST

I saw the bold font. I wasn't aware of how picky/serious it was. I noticed a dodge listing and went ahead with it.
I used this forum for inspiration on my build, so I respect the space.


Thanks for linking me back to the thread.



Dick,
I've always encountered a bit of confusion around the engine specs. One of the reasons I bought a new van was to avoid any mechanical issues. Its a different language to me. I've heard the engine referred to as a "Mercedes" by a few different salesmen, never really understanding (or needing to understand) any different. Thanks for the clarification!

-Best, Trish.

Trish, it was an easy and understandable mistake to make (especially if you're misled by those paragons of accuracy: car salesmen).

Since the two sizes (3.0 liters and 3.6 liters) match the current Sprinter engines, one of the first rule-them-out specifications passed them as "possibly Mercedes".
It took digging through both web pages i cited to reveal the answer (although those of us who were watching when the companies split (MB/Dodge) and rejoined (Dodge/Fiat) would've been very very surprised if the Ducato/ProMaster used an MB engine... but that's background info)/

...and there are members of this group who have gone to the Dodge Side with ProMasters (and others to Ford Transits)

good luck with the selling
