My biggest and probably only complaint atm about this van. Oh how I wish someone would fill a container full of Vito Sport Comfort seats."Still, the seats are heavy and you have to figure out where to store them when they are not in the car. Since this is a commercial vehicle, they don’t fold flat like seats in a family minivan. The seats should have been on rails, so that you could slide them back and forth, gaining more flexibility. The van’s design restricts where you can place the rows to two fixed locations. You can swap them or remove one or both, but you can’t reposition the rows."
I wasn't aware the seats could be had in other models. Really I just want something that folds or a pile of parts to convert my seats to folding ones. I think the leatherette is quite nice as it is anyway.If MB offered Comfort Seats all around in the Metris, I would buy one today.
Unless MB "ups its game" on the passenger version of the Metris, my guess is that most of their sales will be cargo vans.
I think you should give them another chance. IMHO and all, but I've owned over a dozen vehicles and Metris seats are by faaaaar the most comfortable for the long haul. Seat comfort counts about 30% towards my vehicle choice and the minute my a$$ hit the seat......I would buy a Metris if it had better seats or if I could buy nicer seats.
