Pics are bad enough, they are even fuglier in person. Very seldom even see one on the road.

I drove the V8; good power, handling and lots of good ideas like the tie down points.

If it had 4WD, better mpg and body styling they would sell a lot of them IMO.

The biggest problem I see is their dealer-network strategy. They put requirements in place that potential dealerships have to adhere to. Many aren't willing to do it, thereforere, not becoming a stocking NV dealer. No dealers equals no sales.

I don't think they're ugly; just different. We've become accustomed to seeing the ordinary van. Sprinters weren't/aren't good looking by any stretch. But, they've been around long enough to be accepted. Different strokes, I guess.

I never did hear why all the Nissan dealers can't sell them. What were the special requirements? Many of the parts including the drive train are shared with other Nissans like the Titan and their big SUV

The one dealer that did sell them in my area, doesn't stock them anymore - I had to tell em to quit calling me even though they offered one at cost just to get rid of it.

Never heard anyone say it's just "different" looking before. What's an ugly vehicle to you?

I can't remember all of them, but, "commercial dealers" are required to offer: 365 breakdown availability, 24hr loaner vehicle availability, extended service hours, certain parts inventory stock, business customer priority, etc. I can't find the link on their site, for some reason.

The other is just a difference in opinion.

with Sprinter you can't just go to any Mercedes dealer either; you have to go to a Sprinter certified one.

As for looks - I'm about as biased as you can get
