    1 YR & 20K

    Good morning all, I am looking at a 2019 Sprinter 144, High Roof, 2WD. I know the book says maintenance should be done at 1 YR or 20K. Is this reasonable? Are people doing maintenance more frequently than that? Will I be doing damage to the Sprinter by using this maintenance interval? Thanks! Carl

    Dodge vs Sprinter

    I am in the market for a Sprinter, probably 2010-2014 to meet budget. However, I am still unclear as to whether the Dodge will save me money on maintenance and repairs? I'm mostly looking at MBs, but now considering going for an older Dodge if it will be more cost efficient in the long run. Thanks!
