Not really related to your Mercedes specifically but I write this with absolute truth as i regularly see the guy when visiting my friend. He sends and receives parcels from Lithuania. He is Lithuanian. His wifes father owns a business that sends vans over here and one van in particular is a Mercedes Sprinter like mine. His speedo has just clicked over again for the second time and being LT registered is in km. He is back and forth from Lithuania to the UK (2,000km) every 10 or so days. Last time I saw his speedo was saying 5600 km and as I say has clicked over twice before so has done 2,005,600
He services it every 5k with oil and filter changes and has had no issues whatsoever.
Spoken to many people and they all say the same....the shape of Sprinter I have is the best! 2005 shape....
So sorry Pete C nothing to do with your model of Merc but testament to how well they were built!
Thank you, I enjoy reading all Mercedes related stories.
As for high mileage Mercs, this is my favourite:
