Re: not sure what to say

I test drove a couple of Sprinters when I was shopping and thought they were very stable. I drove the extended high top and there was plenty of room for my 5'10". IMO they ride like crap compared to my 2wd Ford.

Just could not get over the looks.....I'm a ford guy man!

Please don't denigrate a Sprinter by comparing it to the former half-term governor of Alaska. At least Sprinters don't suddenly quit and start babbling on TV talk shows!

Let me guess, Iceland? They love their big tires even more than we do here.

Re: not sure what to say

On the pictures, Yes but the Mantra is built in Austria.
