I am a taxi driver and I bought this vehicle second-hand. It’s 5 years old now, I’ve had 2 1/2 years of trouble free motoring and just clocked up miles after miles. Very well built, should last me few more years...

We bought our Traveliner a few weeks ago and it’s great, it’s grand on the diesel and it’s a great wee drive. We also have a big family and it’s great for that too. There’s loads of room and loads of boot space as well. I think we be holding on to this bus for a while.

Far better than the Peugeot Eurobus from cabdirect, performance is very good and it’s a pleasure to drive.

I am a professional driver, so I use the Vito for work. It came in at roughly the same price as a VW Transporter, the Vito is far better looking but it doesn’t have the boot space of the VW. It is a fairly good performer and at not a bad price. I found that by turning the seats to face each other, this gives you space for more luggage behind the drivers seat and the front row turned seats.

The latest new MERCEDES-BENZ VITO TRAVELINER deals on our sister site TheVanWebsite.co.uk (links open in a new window)
I got this to fit all my kids in, it is very nice to look at, loads of room in it all. This is great until it comes to the drive; very slow in the low gears unless you really put your foot down - seems like you need to get right to the top gears as quick as possible. The first and second gears struggle - also reverse when cold. My wife would rather drive my old Shogun N reg which disappoints me as its a Mercedes. I should of just got a Ford Tourneo which are very easy to drive as my wife will drive my work van which is a transit. A lot of money for very little. I think your just paying for the name which, in this case, Mercedes cannot live up to. I’m not happy at all.

The traveliner makes an excellent vehicle for transporting up to 9 adults comfortably, with luggage. It also has the power to comfortably tow a trailer full of camping kit. My only complaint is that it is all but useless driving on grass!

I have had the Vito Traveliner for over 5 years now and the mileage is still relatively low (just over 70,000). I’ve looked after it well but have had awful problems with corrosion which began after a year’s ownership. There is substantial rust inside the sliding doors, the rear light clusters and also the underside of the bonnet. Although this was all taken care of under warraanty I was obviously concerned and since the rust has spread across more and more of the vehicle. I just don’t think that this is good enough from a supposedly prestigious manufacturer. Very disappointed and will not buy M-B again.

Given our (almost) football team sized family we needed something a little larger than your average MPV and the Traveliner offered the perfect answer. We’ve only had it a few weeks so haven’t made any long journeys in it yet but it certainly gives all the room and comfort we were looking for.
