Get Your Mercedes Sprinter Van Repaired Quicker At DeBoer’s Auto

By Bill DeBoer on Sep 16, 2021 11:45:00 AM

The Mercedes Sprinter Van is a great vehicle, but it’s also a very common one that we see in our shop at DeBoer’s Auto. The biggest problem is we often were not able to do the repair in-house because we did not have the equipment or parts to be able to work on them. This meant we had to send the vehicle to Mercedes to get repaired or the customer had to do so. We never like to make our customers jump through hoops or spend any extra money if it can be avoided, so we are thrilled to have acquired the Mercedes scan tool so we can handle most repairs to Mercedes Sprinter Vans in-house.

The last thing you want to experience is a situation where you have to slam on the brakes in an emergency and they don’t work how they should. Part two of our three-part series on the safety triangle explains everything you need to know about maintaining your brake system.
