Additional information:

Among the 67 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Logo - Daimler Vans USA, LLC. Daimler Vans USA, LLC. (“MBUSA”), a subsidiary of Daimler AG and a Portland, Oregon establishment, has recalled an estimated 8,243 model year 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter 1500, 2500, 3500, and 4500 vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

If the manual turn-switch that activates the vehicle lights is turned quickly from one lighting position to another, the brightness of the taillights in the recalled vehicles can be significantly reduced or could switch off completely.

According to the NHTSA, reduced taillight visibility increases the risk of a crash.

MBUSA will notify registered owners, and Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner Sprinter dealers will update the body control unit software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 20, 2019. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372. MBUSA’s designation for this recall is VS3HELI.
