The parking pawl may not engage, resulting in vehicle rollaway

Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 124,305 model year 2019-2022 Mercedes-Benz Sprinters and Freightliner Sprinters with a manual parking brake and 7-speed automatic transmission.

The guide bushing on the parking pawl may fatigue, which can cause the parking pawl not to engage and result in vehicle rollaway.

This could increase the risk of a crash

What to do

When you take the vehicle to a dealer, the software of various control units -- including the electronic stability and transmission control units -- will be updated free of charge.

Owners will be notified by letter beginning around December 19, 2022.

Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267.

DVUSA's numbers for this recall are 22V2790611, 22V2790612, and 22V2790613.
