You could also post on the V-Class forum. The V-Class is the exact same as the Sprinter.
V-Class is not same as Sprinter.
I asked a question about nine months ago and this is what I got for an answer.
The Dodge Sprinter is the same as the European MB Sprinter mid size van. The V-class / Vito is one size smaller than the Sprinter.
Previous model V-class / Vito van used to be a bestseller in Europe (do not know about the news ones, I moved to the US in 2003) and the first front wheel drive Mercedes around (before the A class was launched in 1997). What else... the V-class was built in Vitoria, Spain (that's why the van was called Vito). Had the same initial quality issues as the M-class and A-class (interior and drivetrain).
I used to drive a Sprinter every now and then when I worked as a shipchandler some 8-10 years ago.
Fast great van! The only one I knew that would do over 100 MPH in a safe manner.
All Dodge Sprinters have the most powerful engine in the range (160 HP in line five turbo diesel), in Europe it's sold in (I believe) 100 and 125 HP spec as well.

I know your enthusiasm to participate this BenzWorld, but if you do not know something well just zip it.
