2014 MERCEDES-BENZ SPRINTER 3500

Report Date:
February 10, 2017
Campaign Number:
17V093000
Component:
AIR BAGS

Summary:
Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling certain 2013-2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 and 3500 and Freightliner Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vans. These vehicles were manufactured without a reinforcement plate and protective bracket on the air bag control unit. As a result, the air bag control unit may not remain functional after the initial impact, possibly preventing additional air bags from deploying in response to a secondary impact.

Consequence Summary:
If additional air bags do not deploy as intended, the occupants are at an increased risk of injury.

Corrective Summary:
DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will install a reinforcement plate and protective bracket around the air bag control unit, free of charge. The recall began on May 26, 2017. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267.
