You will fast fall in love with that diesel. The automated manual takes a bit of getting used to but it is a winner too. Insist they top up the DEF even u=if you have to pay for it. Ask for free oil changes, many got 4. Your price is a killer deal IMHO.

You quoted me, but I don't yet have a Promaster. That being said, the sandstone color is on my short list.

UUGGGHHHHHH Again,

Dealer just called, said it has a CEL now, the DEF pump, they have one on order. Didn't someone on here have a major issue with getting the parts and making sure it was correct.

I'm having second thoughts now.....

This should not be happening! That system should be drained and rinsed when the van gets sold if it has sat for a few months. My dealer and the diesel/promaster trained tech that did my prep last summer said the diesel's give the "DEF- service system" warning unless they top the tank up with fresh DEF. They did on mine and no problem for almost 10K miles. The poster who had the tank/metering pump has a Jan 28 parts date! Egad! I have thought all along it is bad/spoiled DEF from MX and sitting, but what do I know?
See: http://www.promasterforum.com/forum/...ad.php?t=47865

I'd not give them any money until it is resolved or have them bring me a different van in from another dealer. Be sure it is a mid 2015 or later.

Thanks RD, I'm not giving them a dime until we get this sorted out. The VIN I have from their website doesn't pull up a window sticker or build date. I've asked them to verify the VIN and build date for me.

I know the van had 182 miles on it last weekend when I went to test drive it. They have it for a while but not sure how long.

Thanks for the help and link!

My 2015 Diesel 3500 Ext has a build date of 12/14 and sat on lot till 9/15 with 80 miles on odometer when I took delivery (had dead battery so dealer replaced with brand new one).. I did make sure they filled the DEF before I drove off the lot.. Now with 8900 miles NO issues at all!

At another dealer now doing paperwork. 2015 136 HR with diesel. A few more bucks but it's the cherry red and sooooooo much better than white.
