Vito 115 cdi owner from South Africa


I own a 2005 vito 115 cdi crew bus(8 seater)

I've been using benzworld to check for info for a while now but didn't register.

The info has been helpful and increased my knowledge tremendously.

The users on benzworld are very informed, that's why I decided to register.

I'm not very mechanically inclined so I'm not sure I'll be able to help anyone with technical knowledge but I'm sure my experiences that I've had with my vehicle will be helfull to others.

I agree about the MERCDADS that I've read about.
In South Africa it seems to be a similar trend.

My vehicle is serviced by a BMW master technician who has his own workshop.
He used to service my previous car 2001 BMW 320d.

He is very good a what he does that's why I've continued to give my vehicle to him.

I purchased my vehicle 2nd hand with 59 000 km on the clock, but it needed a few things to be sorted out.

He did all the repairs, but when he had a few questions and spoke to the MERDAD's they proved to be just that.They could not help because they were "not sure".

I have 1 problem that he has not been able to sort out with the central locking but I'll post a thread an see if anyone here can help.

Anyway I've probably rambled on too much.
