Mercedes-Benz Vito Q&As

Check out real-world situations relating to the Mercedes-Benz Vito here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.

  • Why does my 2008 Mercedes-Benz Vito cut out when moving or idling?

    Again, a problem like this is very difficult to diagnose via remote control. You haven’t given me much to go on here, but my first suggestion would be to have the car scanned at a workshop and see what error codes materialise. From there, you can take a much more targeted approach to working out which of the hundreds of possible components is causing the problem. Don’t forget the basics, either, such as contaminated or old fuel in the tank. Modern fuel doesn’t like sitting around in a tank and can `go off’ over time.

  • Alternator difficulties with 2013 Vito

    Show the dealer your record of reports and battery replacements to back up your claim and request a goodwill payment to cover the cost of replacing the alternator. If that isn't successful you could consider going to VCAT.

  • Valuation for 2004 Mercedes-Benz Vito van

    There are a lot of variables affecting the value of a van like the Vito. Is it a diesel or petrol? Is it a short wheelbase or long? Does it have a high roof or standard? It's got low kays, long reg and new tyres, all factors in its favour. Assuming it's a regular diesel van the value would be $8000-$10,000.

Mercedes-Benz Vito Seats

There’s good comfort for both driver and front passenger and 930mm sliding-door openings provide easy access to the rear stalls from both sides. When seated, even tall passengers would enjoy the ample knee, foot and headroom on offer and if travelling three-abreast appreciate the generous shoulder room provided by the space between the outer seats and sliding doors. The two outer positions also have swing-down armrests.
