Whoever specified purchase of the NV200 for your application clearly did not do his/her homework, as it is way over-loaded.
Lol, where to start...
The NV200 has a GVWR of 4700lbs. My van with me and full tank of fuel and all my gear and tools currently weighs in at approx. 4320lbs.
So mathematically, I am not over the GVWR.
I haven't measured each axle to see if I am over either the front or rear GAWR.
Realistically, the van is extremely light duty and underpowered.
Anything more than a bouquet of flowers or a sheet of lattice and it's over-loaded. :smile:
I was the pilot for our local company branch and have fed back all my findings with this van to our mgmnt.
We have about 7 of these vans now but there will be no more hopefully.
We were previously using Dodge Caravan's.
For now, I keep driving it.
I will paint the other 3 wheels black so they look better.
I plan to install Nokian WR All weather tires (205/60R15's) this fall.
They are a little taller and wider with a weight rating of 1520 lbs @ 50psi.
Hopefully this will improve the handling and stability of the van, plus look much better.
