History
Got my Metris end of November. I wanted a fully loaded cargo van with all the optional packages except the cold weather package but was informed the wait time was months. I did not want to wait that long as I needed a cargo van now. I opted for the one they had on the lot even though I did not need the cold weather package here in Hawaii. When dove it home I noticed a problem with the side mirrors being too small with bad blind spots. I almost had a accident when I turned into the right lane with a truck I did not see in the blind spot. Also had a bad noise problem that was later found by the MB folks to be a loose heat shield. They took 5 days in the shop to find the problem and correct. I've had the Metris for a two months now and have made some modifications to it.
