Review

Somewhat spartan in ergonomics, the Sprinter is fairly comfortable in a basic way. It does not compare to American made vans (in the same price range) in technology and creature comforts. More advanced features are not even available. It seems the Euro style is stark functionality over luxury. Functionality is key. I appreciate the economy, handling, and spaciousness greatly. This is where this van beats domestics hands down. I consider the Sprinter passenger van to be a "happy medium" between a bare bones cargo van and a decked out domestic family van. I can't comment on the reliability due to it's newness, but the diesel model has been around for years and the turbo gives it a boost.


Favorite Features

Spunk. Visibility. Utility. Interior room. Maneuverability. Fuel economy. Simple ergonomics. Well thought out basic needs


Suggested Improvements

More advanced technology in electric door mechanisms. Available alarm interface. Better air conditioning. More ventilation options (operable windows) More sound system options. More seating options including lighter, less cumbersome, and much more easily removed and replaced rear seating

Review

Looked at Mini-vans, SUVs, and Full-sizers. Minivan was ruled out as it could not pull the boat, SUV was hard on gas, and Ford/GM full size was not too good on gas either and drove like slugs and did not handle as nice. The Sprinter drives much smaller than it is, is easy to park, great visibility, handles well, and hauls 8 very comfortably. I tinited the windows and did the M-B grille and badge conversion and it looks great! It is fun to drive and everyone is always checking it out. Draws a small crowd at the truck stop fueling up. Love those high-speed diesel pumps!


Favorite Features

Avg. of 26mpg is great! Lots of room. Heated windshield, heated seats and Aux Heater is awesome in the winter! Seats are comfortable. Great power/acceleration around town. Best cruise control I have ever used. Easy to clean floor!


Suggested Improvements

Tilt steering would be nice (but is comfortable as is), larger parabolic mirror on pass. side, more speakers/better sound system, remove speed limiter (set at 85mph)
