Now I see they've adding vibrating of the steering wheel to that feature.
Great. Just friggin' great! What's next, pinching me in the ass to remind me I'm using bio-diesel??

At some point, the manufacturers have to start trusting us, again.

Anybody who needs the steering wheel to vibrate and an alarm to sound because they are drifting out of the lane needs to pull over and take a nap. Jeeezzz!!

No what they need is an app that instantly blows up the phone of people who drive while texting and are drifting from lane to lane.

Contenintals are the same size, but not called Vanco. Different side graphics and tread pattern.

I have contacted Leisure about the passenger seat issue, and they are waiting for a reply from Mercedes if there is a way to reprogram. I also contacted my local MB Sprinter dealer, and they were not aware of this issue. They were going to look into it and see if anything can ber done. The Sprinter tech guy suggested trying to move the seat all the way forward, hold for 5 seconds, then move the seat back to see it will override the current setting. Have not tried it yet as my Unity is in storage.

You could try driving between the lane lines...

Nanny state accusations or not. It doesn't appear these are OEM driven refinements (pun intended)
but I'm generally in favor of the trend for these types of tech refinements by big gubment.

I'm guessing this design is meant to force us (drivers) to remain within the envelope of the newly added air bags. But, I'd LOVE to be able to recline as I could do with older Sprinter chassis.

Is it still recommended (necessary) to have the new (from Winkler) front end aligned?
(Plan to have Les Schwab install the Borg tire stems the day after rec'g ownership/orientation/nite over in the dealership) thanks.

Yes, probably. Won't hurt and could save your tires. Still be nice if they did this for us...
