Glad to hear someone else is putting on the miles like we are with ours...on pace for 20K a year by this fall when it will be 2 years old. Also doing 7-10K oil changes. Best road tripping vehicle we have ever had... No issues so far other then a cooked battery this summer and broken antenna due to a solid winter so no complaints there...Already making plans for a 170 4x4I have a 2016 4x4 170 inch super high roof that I bought last summer and now have 39k miles on it with no issues (knock on wood). I had the dealer install the crew cab windows. Cost $800 and well worth it.
I get 15 to 16.5 mpg but I have a heavy foot and usually set the cruise as high as the governor will allow (82 to 84). I am in the motorcycle business and I travel a lot with three dirt bikes in the rear of the van and usually two other people with me. I have the oil changed at 10k miles because I just can't make myself go 20k.
There are a few little things that irritate me:
It is difficult to get the key fob to unlock or lock the doors even with it pointed at the front of the van.
I hate the door lock button being located on the dash. You have to get into the vehicle to unlock the other doors. Wish they were located on the doors like most vehicles.
Can't turn the rear interior light on from the front.
Rides a little rough but it is a van after all.
I wish the governor would allow for 85 to 87 mph so I could use that speed to get around slower drivers in the left lane but then again.....prolly should drive something that big that fast!
The 4x4 feature is awesome. I owned three Ford E350 vans before this Sprinter and all would get stuck in grass if it was even slightly damp. I have a friend with a mile long dirt driveway over a large hill, red clay dirt and rain ruts and I have been up and down it multiple times after a heavy rain. He has towed me out with his 4x4 John Deere multiple times in the Fords.
Based on the experience I've had so far I'd buy another.
