I would consider sewing in small claims court whoever built the original van. That may not cover the cost of repairs but it will get thier attention a lot faster than just asking. If the company has any operations in your state you should be able to get to them this way.
The Sprinter is sold by Dodge and Freightliner and built by Mercedes.......take your pick!!!!!

This week it's all the same company. I would go for Mercedes just because that is where the money ends up, at least until GM buys them. I would file before GM gets into the act because they never warranted anything let along problems they bought.
