Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 4,385 model year 2019 Mercedes Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles.
The flange connection between the exhaust gas turbocharger and the exit to the diesel particulate filter may not be attached properly, potentially causing an exhaust gas leak.
An exhaust gas leak in the engine compartment increases the risk of a fire.
What to do
DVUSA will notify owners, and Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner Sprinter dealers will replace the flange seals and properly tighten the connection free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin March 27, 2020.
Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3FLABIND.
