Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 47,667 model year 2015-2020 Mercedes Benz and Freightliner Sprinters.
The hydraulic power steering return line hoses may detach at their connection points under certain operating conditions, causing hydraulic fluid to leak.
The sudden loss of power steering assist and hydraulic steering fluid leaking onto the roadway may increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will check the return line connections of the power steering system, correcting it -- as needed -- free of charge.
The recall was expected to begin November 2020.
Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this campaign is NV3LETULPE.
