    No wonder Mercedes are propping up many of the reliability leagues. I have just suffered "breakdown" number 1 with my BMW after less than 4 weeks. The car is still perfectly driveable but its really irritating so I can only imagine what 31 real breakdowns is doing to you. Surely you should be entitled to some form of compensation?

    I would have thought Motability would have let you change long before now.

    When the gearbox stops working and goes off to the dealer, are they making repairs to the original gearbox / computer software, or replacing the whole gearbox ? do you ever get an explanation of the work they have done ?

    Hi bob
    All I know is that whilst it's been in they have replaced the valves and the electrics n the box, but n the sprinter forums when it comes t auto gearbox they say change it as its a pain in the ass and simpler to change but that will cost more than just changing parts .
