New owner here - Show me your mileage!
I recently purchased a 2015 Promaster EcoDiesel with ~36k miles on it.
So far I absolutely love it! Gets great gas mileage, drives nice, and the diesel pulls good... but I have read the horror stories! I've read some of the problems users on this very forum experienced and as a result, I nearly didn't buy it. But I got a fair deal and took the risk (got the extended warranty just in case).
Anyway, I want to know that not all these promasters had issues. Is there anyone out there with a positive experience? Who has the most miles and what, if any, issues did you experience along the way?
I can say that my experience so far has been very positive-
Our first weekend with it we took it for a few hundred mile road trip with a couple mountain passes and it did beautifully! Nearly 27mpg with two full sized dual sport bikes in the back (~500lbs/ea). To top it off, I helped a buddy flat tow his small SUV across town (yes, still with bikes in back) and I could barely tell I was towing anything! This thing has low-end torque for days! I just hope it lasts 200k more miles without major repair costs or leaving me stranded anywhere. Im about to build this thing into a camper and live out of it. Can't be breaking down in Baja or Alaska!
Please tell me there are some good anecdotes out there!
