I too like the looks and handling of my promaster. I have had major issues with the transmission and not much luck from chrysler/fiat to care or repair in a timely manner. The transmission issue on the diesels is a major safety issue but since nobody has been killed yet it is a hard case to prove. A lot of the guys with the gas powered promaster have reported fewer problems. I have seen reports of cost difference of about $5-6000 in fuel over a 100k mile period. That is about the amount i have spent in repairs not covered by the factory. Not including the huge amount of downtime or rental cost. The diesel van itself is easy to like, the reliability is not.
