2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, Freightliner Sprinter: Recall Alert


Manufacturer image

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,000 model-year 2018-19 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 1500, 2500, 3500 and 4500, and Freightliner Sprinter 1500, 2500, 3500 and 4500 work vans

The Problem: The rear side windows may be single-pane safety glass instead of laminated safety glass. In the event of a side-impact crash or vehicle rollover, the windows may not adequately protect the rear occupants from being ejected, increasing risk of injury.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the single-pane safety glass with laminated safety glass for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner manufacturer Daimler Vans will begin notifying owners Aug. 12. Owners can call the automaker at 877-762-8267, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit NHTSA's website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
