If this is a 111CDi then it must be less than 3 years old and covered by
warranty, so whats the issue?
All I can see is MB are trying to blame it on water ingress as oppossed to
mechanical failure so you need to claim off insurance and they don't get a
On a related point I have a Vito 115cdi which just went in for it's first 12
month service at 9000 miles. It gets very light use, as you can see from the
mileage, however the entire front suspension has to come out as it's failing
completely, there were 15 fault codes on the computer when they plugged it
in, it occassionally won't lock, it occassionally won't open and
ocassionally I simply can't remove the key from the ignition.
The computer bit that operates the dashboard is screwed and needs replacing.
The rear door warning alarm keeps coming on and they can't stop it.
This isn't quite what I expected when I invested in a new vehicle instead of
losing time having to keep repairing an old second hand vehicle that would
cost me far less money.
Taken it into a the main dealer where I bought it and they don't have
courtesy vehicles, so I either need to take time off or hire something.
We bought my wife a new Jaguar this year, they are quite the most helpful
dealer I've come across, they pick it up, leave a courtesy vehicle for you
and return it when it suits you, if Jaguar made vans, this German junk would
be going back right now.
