Additional information:

Among the eighty one (81) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - Daimler Vans North America LLC Daimler Vans North America LLC (“DVUSA”), a Portland, Oregon establishment and a subsidiary of Daimler AG of Stuttgart, Germany, has recalled an estimated 4,987 model year 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter Vans equipped with diesel fuel systems marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V798000 reports the bayonet lock between the fuel pump and the fuel tank may not have been closed and locked during manufacturing in the recalled vehicles. As a result, a leak between the fuel pump and the fuel tank could occur. In addition, a gas station fuel pump may not automatically stop once the tank fill level is reached, potentially causing the fuel to overflow.

According to the NHTSA, a diesel fuel leak can create slippery road conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.

DVUSA will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect the bayonet lock on the fuel pump, locking it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2019. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”). DVUSA’s designation for this recall is VS3KRAFMOD.
