THE Sprinter stays top for fleet reliability as the large van once again receives the coveted FN50 award for being the most reliable for the second consecutive year, and the third year in total since 2011 (2011, 2015 and 2016).
The top-place ranking was announced at the annual FN50 event hosted at the Park Plaza in Westminster Bridge.
The FN50 is an independent market perspective audit ranking the largest 50 leasing companies across the UK, carried out in August and September of 2016.
Steve Bridge, managing director of Mercedes-Benz Vans UK, told over 900 industry professionals at the presentation: “Sprinter keeps on adding to its awards haul, even though it is far from the newest van on the block.
“In fact, in Europe it has defined an entire class of van – known as the Sprinter segment!
“The FN50 award for most reliable van proves that the tough, durable, dependable workhorse which is a firm favourite for fleets, actually does what it says it’s going to do.
“And if our vans do break down, we offer MobiloVan free of charge to our customers, which enables UK and Europe -wide free roadside assistance by Mercedes-Benz trained technicians carrying Mercedes-Benz genuine parts, to get the vehicle back on the road as quickly as possible.”
