The Chrysler Aspen was on the market from 2007 to 2009, and it is still available as a used vehicle. The original starting price for the base model 2009 Chrysler Aspen was between $34,730 and $45,270, depending on the trim level and options.

Now, consumers can purchase a base model 2009 Aspen Limited for approximately $20,371 according to Edmunds.

Chrysler Aspen Auto Insurance

Drivers of the 2009 Chrysler Aspen will generally pay about $7,710 over five years to insure it, according to Edmunds’ projections.

That’s a yearly rate of $1,542, and a monthly bill of about $129. This is actually a bit more than drivers of late model large SUVs like the Chevrolet Suburban, the Toyota Sequoia, and the Ford Expedition will pay.

The National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) projects that 2011 Suburban drivers will pay about $1,182 annually for auto insurance, and 2011 Sequoia owners will pay about $1,191.

To insure a Toyota Sequoia for one year, owners will pay about $1,193, and Chevy Tahoe owners will pay about $1,145. Insuring a 2011 Expedition for a year will cost most owners around $1,030.

2009 Aspen Maintenance Expenses

Edmunds’ survey data suggests that most used Chrysler Aspen drivers will pay $256 for routine maintenance the first year they own this SUV, and $1,491 the second year.

The third-year bill for the Aspen’s scheduled maintenance will be approximately $606, and the fourth-year and fifth-year bills will be $614 and $557, respectively. That all totals up to $3,524 over five years.

Just as the 2009 Chrysler Aspen’s auto insurance costs were higher than those for comparable new SUVs, this is also the case with its maintenance costs.

The Ford Expedition is one of the most expensive new SUVs to maintain, but it is only expected to rack up costs of about $2,290 over five years, reports the NADA. The Chevy Suburban and the 2011 Toyota Sequoia will cost about the same to maintain as the 2011 Expedition does, and the Chevrolet Tahoe will only cost $2,275 to maintain for five years.

Owners will pay just $2,222 for five years of maintenance for the GMC Yukon. That’s over $1,000 less than what 2009 Aspen owners are expected to pay.

Chrysler Aspen Repair Costs

In the first year you own a 2009 Aspen Limited, expect to pay about $120 for repairs. This figure will more than double to $283 during the second year, and top $400 during the third year.

Aspen repair expenses will cost most drivers about $480 the fourth year they own this SUV, and $559 during the fifth year. Edmunds anticipates that total repair bills for this vehicle will sum up to over $1,850 after five years.

Compared with the repair bills for new large SUVs, this repair cost is typical. It’s somewhat higher than the $1,774 expected 5-year repair cost for the 2011 Expedition, but it’s a little lower than the $1,935 that most drivers pay for Tahoe and Yukon auto repairs.

The 5-year repair costs for the 2011 Suburban and the Toyota Sequoia are both similar to what 2009 Aspen drivers pay, the NADA estimates.

Chrysler Aspen Fuel Efficiency

The average fuel economy for the base model Aspen Limited is 14 city mpg/19 highway mpg, U.S. News states. The 4-wheel drive version gets 13 city mpg/18 highway mpg. The only large SUV with worse fuel economy is the Nissan Armada, which gets just 13 city mpg/19 highway mpg.

The Expedition and the Sequoia both get 14 city mpg/20 highway mpg, and the fuel economy ratings for the Yukon, Suburban, and Tahoe are all 15 city mpg/21 highway mpg.

The 2009 Aspen Hybrid gets 19 city mpg/20 highway mpg. It features a 5.7 liter V8, which isn’t quite as powerful as the 6.0 liter V8s available in the Tahoe Hybrid and the Yukon Hybrid.

Both of these SUVs also get better fuel economy than the Aspen Hybrid, at 20 city mpg/23 highway mpg.

Chrysler Aspen Crash Test Results

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety never got around to testing the 2009 Chrysler Aspen, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) conducted two collision tests. In the NHTSA’s rollover testing, the Aspen earned three stars, which is typical for a large SUV.

In the organization’s front impact collision testing, the 2009 Aspen received the full five stars for protecting both the front passenger and the driver. The 2009 safety test results are not necessarily equivalent to 2011 and 2012 test results.

Chrysler Aspen Safety Equipment

Despite being somewhat dated, the 2009 Chrysler Aspen has many of the same standard safety features you’ll find in new SUVs.

For instance, it’s equipped with electronic stability control and electronic roll mitigation. There’s also standard electronic brake force distribution, as well as a tire pressure monitoring system.

The Aspen is even outfitted with the ParkSense system, which alerts the driver if there’s an object in the vehicle’s path when it is reversing. This feature is particularly helpful given the limited rear visibility of large SUVs like the Aspen.
