Sprinter vehicles recalled for potentially dangerous swivel seat issue

Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling 2019-2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles equipped with swivel seats. The wiring harnesses for the front seats may have been routed incorrectly and could become jammed and damaged in the swivel seat frames. The potential number of units affected is 4,078.

Damage to the wiring harness can prevent the side air bag within the seat to deploy inadvertently or not deploy as designed, increasing the risk of injury.

Dealers will attach the mounting clip to the correct position, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 12, 2021. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267. DVUSA’s number for this recall is VS3DREHSEL.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
