Mercedes Sprinter dealers are authorized to do warranty work on Dodge Sprinters. You may want to ask one about it, I have heard that they will adjust for your situation. They want the long term business.
#1276 of 1281 Aftermarket tethers?
Jul 19, 2010 (9:28 pm)
We are purchasing a used 2004 Dodge Sprinter for our family of eight. I have five children still in carseats. We know there is no latch system and no tether system in the Sprinter and that LATCH cannot be installed aftermarket. However, I am trying to find out how to get tethers installed aftermarket. Would I contact a MB dealer?
The safety of installing carseats with the seatbelt is equal to that of LATCH, but tethering should be used with FF carseats to increase safety. I dont' really care how much it would cost, just that I can get it done.
#1277 of 1281 Transmission will not shift from PARK with brake depressed
May 01, 2011 (9:53 am)
I have an 05 Sprinter carrying an 06 Winn View.... after a long trip last month the transmission would not allow shifting from park, unless I depress the latch within the shifter area with a pencil. So I have been driving the RV this way.
I have now found out that the cruise control will not release after depressing the brake peddle as well.
I have been advised there is a small switch on the brake peddle that allows a contact closure to release either the gear shifter from park and releases the cruise control... Is this true.... I took the Sprinter to the Dodge dealer they advised to correct the problem would cost $670.00, they did no tests to see if the problem was a control module or the brake switch. Any one experience this problems before... Thanks SR Brazil Ft. Lauderdale, FL

I am in the market for a sprinter rv but am concerned about the issues with the diesel engine. I am looking for at least a 2010 and have been looking at the dodge era Mercedes 3.0 diesel.the new Roadtek is a little out of our price range. I'm also concerned about what owners think about the 2500 compared to the 3500. I am looking at the 24 footer

If you are not in a hurry, I would wait until Ford rolls out the full-size Transit next year.
It is just as big, will probably be cheaper and could be serviced at any Ford dealer.
If you are in a hurry, I lack useful advice. Try sprinter-source.com
#1281 of 1281 05 Freightliner sprinter transmissions
Jul 10, 2012 (6:24 am)
I am looking at buying an 05 Freightliner sprinter motorhome conversion. When I test drove it, the transmission did not shift from gear to gear. It started in 1st and I had to manually shift up to each gear. After stopping and turning off the vehicle and restarting, it showed in drive and shifted fine. Has anyone experienced this?
