Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling certain 2019 Mercedes Sprinter Van vehicles. The chassis may be missing the additional stabilization required for its cargo capacity. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 126, “Electronic Stability Control Systems.” If the vehicles are operated without the necessary chassis stabilization, vehicle handling could be negatively affected, leading to the potential for a risk of an accident occurring.
DVUSA (Mercedes-Benz) will notify Mercedes Sprinter Van owners, and dealers will upgrade the chassis by replacing the stabilizer bar on the front axle and replacing shock absorbers and installing a stabilizer bar on the rear axle, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 7, 2020. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267. DVUSA’s number for this recall is VS3FAHRBA. Customers may also reach out to the NHTSA, or reach out to management at BigRigVIN in order to get more information regarding this recall.
