hows it going lads

as the thread title states, im after a vito 109, just a few questions if possible

whats the fuel consumption like?, ill mainly be doing city driving, thats why ive opted for the 109 over the torqier 115 or up.

is the 109 turbo? i drove one, but it doesnt have that lag like the 115 has

seating position, today, i test drove a 109, and a 111, and funnily enough, the 111 seemed to have more room in the front cab, my legs where more extended than in the 109, is there a difference?

i think thats all lads, any help would be smashing

the seating position is probably the most crucial, nothing worse than have a car/van with a crap sitting position, after all, we do spend alot of time in our vehicles

The lad who does my MOT has a 109, I have a 111 (and a 108cdi) and a mate of mine has the 120. I found the driving position in all of them to be identical. The 120's a XLWB.

the 109 is turbocharged,

its weird, i test drove a 111 only 30 minutes after i test drove the 109, and mentioned the driving position to the salesman who said the same as yourself, maybe is was the clutch, it could have been a little higher and needed adjustment

still, cracking little vans, they feel like cars

before you buy one, id use the search function on here, use the words 'issues, problem, fault, limp mode, starting and stalling' to get an idea.

ive been a mercedes man for many years before my vito i had a 207D, THat was a properly built van. my company runs an 03 vito and a 2000 vw transporter. i have an 05 E320cdi estate (my 5th e320, starting with the oooold square headlight one from the early 90's) and my wife has a 99 audi a4. Lets just say that from the most recent experiences of mercedes i shall never ever buy another one.

I bought my vito 109 dualiner in 2005 brand new

It has gone through 2 sets of tyres... now done 52k miles. has mbfsh and I have not had any problems or even changed the brakes etc.

In my opinion it is the best vehicle money can buy vor being so versatile, nice to drive etc. It does about 40 odd to the gallon

I think if I had the choice I would have got the 111 as it is a bit faster. Could not afford to at the time... this spec cost me 18,200!

Hope that helps.
