Just bought a 2015 159 PM from NW Jeep Chrysler Dodge Ram in Beaverton, OR yesterday. By far the best salesman I have ever talked to (Russ) he's the commercial salesman there. After the disgusting time I had at the first to dealerships before NW Ram, it was a breath of fresh air. He knew his product, was genuine, honest, and very informative... Price was very good. I will soon be building a full on Motovan, and posting pics and info while doing so.

I was at the dealer last summer, it was late Sunday and it must of been the B-team. Not too enthusiastic, no offer of test drive either.

I guess I didn't speak with Russ. Did you custom order your PM?

When I bought my Promaster I reached out to every dealer who had Promasters within 400 miles (26 dealers). Only 6 got back to me. My inquiry was general with no mention of price or options.

Imagine the success of PM sales if the dealers properly trained their sales staffs !!
Along with some product knowledge.

I went to each dealer's website to get contact info for the Sales Manager, Commercial/Fleet Manager if they had one and Internet Manager. I called and/or emailed all of them at each dealership.

Nice Moves!!! Motovan??? We are two alike...

I also test drove one with Russ. He was the first place I went to look and I would have bought one from him in a heartbeat, but he didn't have the one I wanted. 3 seater was necessary, and the only one he had was a 159.

I did some searching, and found one that was almost perfect, so i made a drive to Hillsboro to take a peak. The salesman was very nice as well. Super pleasant, and ended up giving me as good of a deal as Russ proposed. I'm not into greasy sales people at all, and both of the commercial sales fleet salesmen on the west side of PDX are amazing.

I use mine for work, but have loaded the db in the back for a quick trip to the Tillamook State Forest. Where do you ride?

Good to know you guys.

I make China Hat once a year with a buddy who organizes a memorial day weekend.

I also used to do supermoto at Pat's Acres and McMinnville.

I don't have the PM yet, I want to wait for the new front end. I am wanting the 159wb hi roof, so I can bring 2 bikes and camp inside as well. Right now I have a sleeping bag and awning over my pickup. As a result, I don't get out as much as I would like.

Walker,

Ive wanted a motovan for 10 yrs, i feel like i just got married! Lol. Driven all of em, spent a year measuring and disecting each pro and con. The only thing ive found that i wish the pm had would be more adjustment on the steering wheel! Probably 10 riding buddies have already came over to check it out and i bought it yesterday!

Thats great Dog, right now I have an old vw doka for hauling, & while I love it, it really can do only 1 bike (btw the driving position is identical!)

I've wanted the PM since it was announced, just want those new lights/front end for my $.

I'm working on my finish panels for the walls and roof. Upper bunk pulls out to make a extra large bunk, full size bed down low. It's all insulated and sound deadend, stays warm and quiet in the rear, or cool in the summer. With the roof vent running I can sleep comfy in the summer heat of socal. I'll be adding a RV style window in the slider and a removable table. Also full audio system and lighting, usb plugs etc. I love the van.
