A Transit or Sprinter might drive more "car like" but I cannot see how either of them will drive "smaller" than your current van. Even the smallest of those two is roughly the same size as what you have now. Definitely have her go test drive other vans before deciding to sell what you have.

Diesel vans are definitely hard to find. I searched for literally 20 years before I found mine.

My wife is 5'8" and drives my EB 350 7.3 Diesel all day with a pillow behind her back. Yours just needs to get the fear out of her mind!

This is my opinion and understanding which I have also heard from many others. Driving smaller doesn't mean the physical size is any different between two things. It simply means it feels smaller, more nimble, relaxing, etc. making it more enjoyable to drive. My LWB mid roof Transit was not at all small but due to the vision, the acceleration, braking and handling it felt like a minivan. I would much rather throw it in to a busy city or tight parking lot than an older behemoth domestic van. I had a Quigley SMB which felt about as big as an oil tanker. It turned about as well too. It was physically smaller than my Transit.

Alright gents (and maybe ladies?), This thing is officially for sale. If you know anyone looking, send em my way. I got a new job and going to buy and build a new van to live/commute in. No issues at all, just a "low coolant light" which was already diagnosed as a bad expansion tank sensor. I'd replace it if it makes the sale go through. Open to reasonable offers. Thanks again.

$25k feels right.
