My employer has several Ram PMCs the fleet. Our commercial vans are both leased and rented out, but all of them are closely monitored for service and reliability. If there was any problems like what is described above we would know about it and no longer purchase such vehicles from FCA Fleet. As it is, Ford with their Transit Connect offers fleet buyers a special drivetrain for commercial fleet service. Ford's TC commercial drivetrain is not offered to retail buyers. The small van most of the automotive journalists rate the best is the Mercedes-Benz Metris, because Mercedes wines and dines journalists to keep the party line. The Metris is an expensive thirsty beast. Chevy pulled the plug on their badge engineered Nissan, BTW. We still have the Nissan version in our fleet, but it's not my pick for a small van with those tiny tires, small engine and CVT.
