After months of researching and checking craigslist we found a van that we thought we wanted to purchase. We went to the family owned dealership checked it out and gave her a test ride. Our brother in law came with us to help make our decision. The van needed some cosmetic help but seemed like a good find. They were asking $4900 excluding closing fees we ended up negotiating for $4900 tax title and license. She is a 2005 Freightliner Sprinter van. 

Notes: Our bro in law noted that it didn’t have much “pickup” but we just figured that’s how it drove. As it turns out it was in “limp home mode” because the turbo resonator needed replaced. 

We got a tremendous deal. With only 100k miles, you can’t find these vans for less than $10k in good condition.
