Long shot here but...

Has anyone any experience of owning or operating Mercedes Sprinter vans? I'm looking to pick up an 05 to 09 plate at auction to convert into a ************** day wagon.

I'm interested in....

Running costs
Known issues
Things to look out for mechanically

...the usual really!

Over to you!

You"ll only find one in the outside lane of any motorway doing 130mph!!!


They are good though, look out for usual diesel issues & whining from gearbox & diff.
It's all a load of bollocks

Ive got a older 312 d , its ex police ( massive no expense spared service history ) a police mechanics van when in police use . lwb high top with the 5 cyl , 3 litre diesel engine its older than what your looking at but I can tell you so far it has been brilliant, bought for 2k 4 years ago (its R reg so older shape) used for many UK to south of France trips (14) rust can be a problem on all mercs. but mechanically very good, traps on easily at 90 mph but thirsty at that speed, better at 75- 80 mph. mileage now is 189000 and going strong. oh and I can fit my 2cv in the back....just....if I hit the ramp fast enough.
