sprinter 311cdi

[:(] Has anyone found the sprinter 311 cdi LWB h/roof to be the most unreliable van on the market? I am an owner driver delivering time sensative goods around the UK. I load up in the morning and I am expected to complete a days delivery to around fifty different stops on contract.If my van fails I have to hire Taxis,couriers and what ever other form of transport to deliver the goods loaded.This costs me a fortune.
My March 2003 sprinter van,silver in colour has failed me no less than 15 times in 18 months. Twice hade engine management system units replaced. six injectors at seperate times numerous engine start error faults and not least common rail low pressure resulting in start failure,
and so... on... and on... and on...
I demanded a replacement from the dealer and was fefused.What would the American customer do?
I placed trust in this van on its reliability claims and now face the loss of this contract through constant failure to provide the goods.

Sounds like a business DISASTER! If he won't fix it permanently or exchange; then document every concern and go to court - can you afford NOT to?

Let me take you on a SEE CRUZ!
