We have 10 Metris vans that we will be running between 20 and 50k a year in. All have maitnenance plans and extended warranty. We were planning on increasing the fleet to over 30, but unless Mercedes get their dealer network figured out we wil probably switch to Transit 2500 low roof. With discounts they are only about $1,000 more than the Metris and the Ford dealers understand commercial users. We need to get vehicles in and out. A real shame because the vehicle size is perfect for our needs. I will keep the forum posted on reliability and costs as the fleet matures. Our oldest vehicle is coiming up to being a year old.
