Do not drive blindly through waterholes. Find out roughly how deep the water is and what the surface is composed of beforehand. When driving through a waterhole, it is important to enter slowly, keep moving and get out again swiftly.
Twists are one special case. Occasionally, one wheel on each axle may be suspended in the air. With its 4ETS traction system, the Sprinter 4x4 reliably detects when a wheel has no traction and brakes this wheel. The best way to handle a situation like this is also slowly, while keeping the vehicle moving. These tips and tricks are a good start for any off-road experience with the Sprinter.
