I loved my 04 Sprinter until it hit 80K. All of the injectors needed replacement. 3 days at the dealer for that one. Transmission failure left me stranded on a job, working out of a rental for a week while they repaired it, at 84K. At the same time I spent $1500 on non warranty items like power door locks, rear door latch, etc etc. At 85K the calipers required replacement-not under the DC extended warranty, along with pads and rotors, for $1500. Now with just a few more miles on it, the trans failed again, can't wait to have it towed to the dealer again to be jerked around, arguing about warranty coverage, having to work out of either my car or a rented van that DC surely won't pay for. The design of the van is great but I think the days of a Mercedes lasting 200K or better are long long gone. My first work van was a '73 VW Van-a far smaller truck but one that I carried the same load in, never had these kinds of probs with TRIPLE the mileage on it! Not sure what to do-my previous full size Chevy wasn't much more reliable, although it was cheaper to fix and the dealer service was much much better, but they and the full size Fords are soooo outdated. Are the new Sprinters just as French like in reliability? Maybe it's time to consider the GM/Isuzu W series cab overs! This Sprinter is killing my business.
