Since our MBS was delivered to the dealer it has had the following M-B issues with the emissions system:
1. It was delivered to the dealer with a CEL on... It took three weeks for the local M-B dealer to locate and install the parts required to "rebuild" the DEF system. I was told there was a running change on the Sprinter production line and the new parts we have were not in open stock yet. Since this is a 2015
chassis that an interesting issue in itself!
2. The first time I fueled up our MBS the diesel pump did not turn off automatically and overfilled it. My error for not paying closer attention...
Anyway that turned on the CEL. I called M-B support, and they said the CEL should clear after 5-8 restarts...it took eleven. After this I bought a ScanGauge to at least see the Error Codes when the CEL comes on...
3. Heading in to Charleston for the F.R.O.G. Rally last December the CEL came on. I had just refilled a few minutes prior so I thought that might be the issue even though there weren't any
issues when refueling. I pulled the Error Codes with my ScanGauge and called M-B support. It wasn't due to the refueling...M-B support said to just keep driving it until I could visit my local dealer.
4. Leaving the Charleston Rally a few days later the dEF Chk and StArts RExx both came on and I went in to "count down" mode. The DEF tank needed less than a gallon to "top off". I drove home only stopping to refuel. After a week in the M-B shop a bad DEF injector was replaced.
So our MBS has been in the M-B shop for about a month for emission system issues since it arrived at my FR dealership.
Along with the emission system issues we have also had:
The Power Door locks replaced. This was performed during the three week visit.
The windshield replaced due to very deep horizontal scratches. Right at eye level for me...
This was another week in the M-B shop while waiting for a new windshield. I insisted on a M-B brand replacement windshield, not some generic brand.
The interior plastic around the seat belts, behind the seats, needed repainted. The seat belt connectors had worn the plastic's color from light grey to white. The dash also needed some "touch up". My local FR dealer took care of this one.
The sad part is when
it runs right the MBS is a pleasure to drive. And the "W" floor plan is very comfortable for the two of us. Anyway I finally resolved any
other possible M-B issues a couple of weeks ago...see my Signature.
