Poor quality sprinter 2012 new problems avoid

published

Got a new mercedes 313 Cdi lwb it leaks water under dash when raining, the side loading door is a very poor fit big gaps and lets in water. Bad turbo lag dangerous trying to over take runs very poorly. Gateshead hunterstar merc don't care. They reply with we will look at it at its first service by then your 2004 sprinter which we have had in with a melted piston due to faulty new injectors we supplied might have a replacement engine by then (2 months later nothing so far)
Load space and that's all.
Expensive, leaks water in dash , leaks water side door, engine poor bad turbo lag mercedes aftercare rubbish don't care

Good

published

This model looks better and has more room but lacks in performance. There is much more storage and features in this model than previous. So far (4000Kms) reliablity has not been an issue, except passenger window would not go down, but was soon fixed. I prefered the previous model to drive, this one better to look at.
A biger vehicle than previous and the seating is an improvement with more leg space up front and nicer saets.
This model, 2007 is very slow of the mark, feels like you are driving with the handbrake on. Previous model had much more get up and go.

Terrible

published

vehicle was delivered new with these problems, 90lbs pressure in left tyres and 40 lbs in right tyres to make it track straight, took it back to have these problems rectified and mercedes refuse to fix them. thought by spending an extra 15 grand on german built would get me quality. 29 calls to mercedes service, hung up on 26 times after being left on hold for more 15 minutes each time, no return of calls or messages, long waits in reception , no ore m.b.'s for me
space, fuel economy, storage,
tyre wear, drive line vibrations, clutch shudder, terribly bad brakes,abs not working, air con stops working in conditions over 33%, rust, cheap and nasty plastics inside,

Bad

published

I drive a 311 CDI, the diesel is more expensive than petrol, it doesn't run more efficiently, the turbo lag is negligible, although if you are having issues with power, maybe consider the twin turbo rather than the single turbo ...
it's size and carrying capacity, also, that it is better than some of the other vehicle options out there - with the same size and carrying capacity, the gearbox is pretty good compared to other makes and models of almost the same van with the same carrying capacity and size.
the fuel efficiency, the handling, the interior, other than the fact that it's a mercedes benz every thing else about this vehicle is pretty bad, if you read the other reviews there seems to be a consensus

The best van on the market by far margin! Don't waste your time with others
When you run a business you need something reliable and this is it!
Bought new in 2007 after trading in the worst van ever Renault Master.This van is so reliable that it's never been back for anything.I have done 157,000 no problems at all Will definitely update to another mbAuto is the way to go
Need to get more powerful van
