My dealer told me there's 4k cash incentive and he has a lot of the cargo vans in stock. He said sales is picking up, but I read that the sales is lackluster for the first quarter.

Is that a good sign for me to get a killer deal by the winter? Is it a bad sign because Metris might not survive the market?

I think there are a few issues that Mercedes should address to get things moving:
1. There are major markets that have no Metris or Sprinter dealers. Minneapolis for one.
2. MB should make some things available. Options like the Viano upscale van, 4-Matic and diesel.

I don't understand why MB doesn't exploit thier unique position in the USA marketplace. These things exist in other markets. It's like they are wading slowly in the lake rather than going for it.

It made me nervous and thinking about Metris will be obsolete in a very near future. I might just trade - in for the new Pacifica now while it still probably have good resale value.

Actually, i think you are thinking in the wrong direction. The Eurovan never sold in big numbers either, and was discontinued. The result is that 15 year old Eurovans are worth insane sums for their age and mileage. There will always be a few people who would be willing to pay good money for a very fast transporter.
