Guest's review of Mercedes Benz VITO 111CDI LWB Extra Long

★★★☆☆

“i bought my mercedes vito van from normands heathrow...”

Written on: 18/03/2010

i bought my mercedes vito van from normands heathrow in 2000, on an X plate really great van.

my only major problem "was" as ive got rid of it now, was "RUST" after just 4 years coming from first all of the doors.

along the bottom and along the door bumper strips including the rear tailgate.

then all the wheel arches,at the front just above the bumper a thin painted strip.

under the bonnet the main cross member rusted badly ive never seen this before.

i contacted mercedes about this, and not knowing the anticorrosion warranty asked how long the warranty was.

the customer service person did not know, then after going away and asking came back and said 3 years on their vans 6 years on their people vito carrier .

i said why so have you two kinds of quality finish, this was a laughable answer but costly to me.

it cost me £2,500 to have this refurbished on my van, mercedes did not want to know .

i used to drive transit vans and decided to go german ,only to find out my mercedes was made in spain as are transits.

ive never seen the kind of all over rust in any transit, as i had in my vito.

i would love to hear from mercedes but never have, i also found out that vito people carriers are made in germany maybe thats why they fair better .
