Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 54 model year 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles with winter tires.

The tires may not have been correctly installed, possibly resulting in reduced traction in wet or snowy conditions.

A reduction in traction may result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

DVUSA will notify owners, and Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner Sprinter dealers will inspect the running direction of the tires correcting them as necessary. If the thread wear is uneven, the tires will be replaced. All services will be performed free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 1, 2020.

Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3LAUFRI.
