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

21 reviews above are ng for automatic transmissions
Is auto still a problem ? And would a manual be a better choice for reliability in a motorhome

YES! You will thank yourself in the long run. The automatic boxes give out with little prior notice. If you can find one get the workshop manual off ebay in a disc form (about $10) then look at the exploded view of the automatic gearbox compared to the manual. The auto when they fail are expensive as hell to fix. Manuals will run like the engine if treated well. All you'll need is the usual clutch replacement when needed which a normal mechanic can do. The autos need to be taken into a Mercedes-Benz service centre. It actually works out cheaper. Don't even bother searching for a local mechanic to work on the auto. You will end up getting ripped off. We took it to a place in North Ringwood on Dorset Rd. I won't name and shame the guy (even though he deserves it). Quoted over $9000.00 and would give no guaranteeon his work. We took it to Mercedes-Benz in Berwick under half the price with a 3yr or 50,000km guarantee on the gearbox.

Sprinter T1N (1995-2006)

Hi there,
I have a 1999 Sprinter with a 2.9L diesel engine and 5 speed manual gearbox.The turn signals were working fine then all of a sudden stopped so did the hazards. Can someone please tell me where is the flasher relay located so I can test/replace it. I had a look under the steering colum(where the fuses are)and under the driver's seat with no luck.
Much appreciated.
