SELL the Sprinter before it gets WORSE.
Mercedes Benz knows they have tech problems, computer problems, and THEY DO NOT CARE. After new switch/removal of steering column, new wiring mine still won't work and yes computer says it's fine!
Computer also said the fuel injectors were FINE, even after I took van to dealer 10 times complaining about how it ran, how mileage dropped to 16-18 vs 24-18mpg, how doggie van was....BUT THE COMPUTER SAID IT WAS FINE!
Then when it started running on 3 cylinders and blowing black smoke with no power to get over Donner Pass on I80 one COLD SNOWY EVE, Mercedes had to REBUILD THE ENGINE because two of the INJECTORS WERE basically melted into the Head! Blow-by, carbon everywhere...and the lid had never been removed by service techs to check the fuel injectors BECAUSE THE COMPUTER SAID THEY WERE FINE! They were likely never programmed when installed, as was the case with the TRANSMISSION.....after the over-haul (8,000 bucks later) the transmission shifted totally differently, the mpg went back to 24-28, and the engine no longer sounded like a farm tractor.
HELL NO Mercedes would NOT stand by their problems, even tho I had documentation back to first time I took van back to dealer with less than 100 miles on it, and ALL invoices for all the issues.........Official review at Ivory Tower Headquarters of US Mercedes-Benz in Maryland: "Too many miles on it to help you out with repairs."
M-B SERVICE IS A WORLD CLASS Misrepresentation.

does anyone know why my sprinter loses power after 8-10 miles after driving like itll pull and go nice and good but then as soon as it hits around 8-10 miles it loses power and wont pull...and then if i turn the car off after this happens and try to start it back up again it wont start unless i wait a good 15-20min. all the injectors are brand new..so i really dont know whats going on i went to the dealership they looked and couldnt figure out what the problem is.. so if anyone could help that would be great.
