Saga continues

Well to sum things up at 700 miles ETC and Cel would come on leaving me in reduced power mode...
Dealer had it for 24 days replaced the turbo. returned the van and next day same issues

27 days at the dealer they replaced egr valve and cooler, waste gate and solenoid, vacuum reservoir. And a radiator. Then it wasn't running right abd they found oil on the mass airflow sensor and cleaned it...

Well after that drove to FL and found that the ac didn't work.... Couldn't get into a dealer until after I got home the compressor / clutch was bad

Today p208a code followed by 200 miles tilll speed is limited

What a Pos... Currently the van is at 17500 miles

Sorry to hear about your predicament. So judging by your title this isn't the first set of problems you've encountered. Have these issues cropped up before or is this new fodder for the dung heap. My 2015 diesel is at 12,000 miles.. Knock on wood and fingers crossed.

The etc stuff started at 700 miles Ive had it here abd there between Repair attempts and racked up miles.. A week and a half till I reliezed the ac didn't work and that was fixed a few weeks ago... I drive roughly a 100k miles a year so it doesn't take long for me to add on miles lol

They don’t know what is wrong with your van, obviously. Lemmon law or buy back been discussed? They have thrown parts at it and you have had bad luck on other not related issues (MAF sensor, AC issue) and I too would be fed up. It may be time to move on. I have 30K on mine and it has been great. So few have recently had issues! There is something wrong with yours that hasn’t been changed out. I’d think your dealer would be on your side on a buyback. Good luck.

2015 136" HT Diesel Sandstone Metallic happy with the owner conversion. See: http://www.promasterforum.com/forum/...ad.php?t=37177

It was bought commercially and the lemon law does not apply... My lawyer can still sue for monetary settlement but not for a replacement or buy back
