Yep seem to not be a perfect van and if you work in hawaii parking and height restrictions are a constant problem.
Use the chevy van extended but it be nice to stand up in a van when getting parts just might not happen in hawaii.
That was a nice set up on the picture that guy posted in the beginning.
I love my 2004 Sprinter, I have the long wheel based one with the high roof. I found if you take the sprinter to the Freightliner dealer and get service it is half the price of what the Dodge dealerships charge. The Dodge guys just look at us Sprinter owners as easy targets when it comes to service. A lot of the stuff I been doing myself since my warranty has long ran out. One thing that did p*** me off about my Sprinter is that I am getting rust from under the paint, and when I took it to the dealer since the paint and body supposed to have a 100k warranty. They told me it was not covered since I am using the truck for commercial use. WTH do they think people buy these for? Camping?
Time flies like an arrow.
Fruit flies like a banana.
But the repair bill is why we won't buy a Sprinter, even though I like them. This one Plumber we know got featured in a magazine for his Sprinter truck, and I drool every time I see it at the supply house.
Geno, my Sprinter just hit 134K miles I am averaging 20 MPG. And about the Dodge dealers being a rip off They want 12 bucks a quart for the oil, where the Mercedes Benz dealer and frieghtliner wants $4.75 per quart. As for filters they want over 50 bucks for the fuel filter and 30 bucks for the oil filter. Here is a place I pay 32 bucks for the fuel filter and just under 10 bucks for the oil filter.
