Euro 5 Vito Taxi

We met MB directors recently and asked for an extended warranty for Euro 5 owners until the rear steer upgrade components are tested and fitted.

They agreed and gave us the statement below:

Mercedes-Benz Vans offers free upgrade to Euro 5 Vito Taxi rear steet system

Mercedes-Benz Vans is proactively offering an upgrade on the innovative rear-wheel steer system on all Euro 5 Vito Taxis, at no cost to the customer.

To further improve the rear-wheel steer, a number of new components are being developed: both the near side and off side actuators and the electronic control unit responsible for their operation.

These components are being tested to industry best practice standards and customers will be invited, after testing is complete in August, to visit their local Mercedes-Benz commercial vehicle dealer to have the new parts fitted.

Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: “We understand that these vehicles earn a living for our customers and our team has worked tirelessly to ensure that Vito Taxis have remained safe and roadworthy. Keeping them on the road and earning money for drivers is our priority, so we are pleased to be announcing the roll out of these new rear-wheel steer components.”
