Daimler Vans USA is recalling 109 2016-model year Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vans so dealers can address a fire risk issue, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Daimler Vans manufactured the vehicles without a driveshaft catch strap, allowing a loose driveshaft to strike the fuel tank. If the tank is punctured, a fuel leak might result and increase the risk of fire, NHTSA said.
DVUSA dealers will install the missing catch strap for the driveshaft. There will be no charge for this service. Van owners can reach DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267.
