This is my third Sprinter and it is by far the worst. The old 5 cylinder got much better mileage with the same power. Repairs take forever because lack of parts and experience with them usually only one master mechanic per dealership I found. In 50k miles had 2 glow plugs go bad, the pads are crap and where the rotors out $2200 for all 4, leaking power steering rack $2k, bad power steering pump, had the shifter spring break twice leaving it stuck in park or in drive $750 then $1500 to replace the shifter, the volume knob on the radio does not work for some reason anymore and the transmission needs a special dipstick to check the fluid level. My advice is buy a proven more reliable work van.
