1999 Mercedes-Benz Vito turbo diesel from Australia and New Zealand
Make up your own mind
First week, diesel fuel leaked.
New radiator/coolant tank (plastic) welded seam leaked.
Instrument cluster panel (speedo) broke down.
Tail gate handle broke; screw removal caused break off.
Rear wiper motor ceased working after 3 years.
Steering wheel plastic covering lost adhesion.
2nd radiator replaced, upper/lower part, joint leaking.
Van stopped. Fuel pump etc. required head grinding. $11600.
Loss of power up inclines, slow acceleration.
Front door: vinyl coverings of the door panels are receding.
Random non starting, then fine over a long period.
Had all the required services, and I am a careful driver.
The colour of the van is yellow = lemon?
P.s. not mention all the other little things early on.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
