2004 Mercedes-Benz Vito 115 CDI 2.2 turbo diesel


Economical, but not fun to drive


Disturbing noise came from the seats, it may be due to bad build quality.

A pair of rear shocks failed at 12000km.

Black smoke when high revs since new.

The Infrared Keys malfunctioned occasionally.

General Comments:

Great fuel economy for a panel van.

A tankful of diesel range around 800kms.

The ESP saved an accident once on the freeway.

The ABS did a bad job on extreme slippery roads.

Bad cabin insulation and the A/C not cold enough.

The ride was bumpy for a Mercedes.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
