Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 17 model year 2016-2017 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vans, equipped with folding seats.
The unloaded vehicle weight (UVW) label on these incomplete vehicles may be incorrect.
The incorrect UVW label can result in final stage manufacturers exceeding the maximum vehicle weight once the vehicle is completed. A vehicle that exceeds its maximum weight has an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the UVW label and inspect the vehicle to make sure that it is not overloaded, free of charge.
The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267.
