Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 48,775 model year 2019 Freightliner and Mercedes-Benz Sprinters.
The rear part of the fender liner on the front axle may contact and chafe the brake hose, possibly resulting in a loss of brake fluid.
A loss of brake fluid can extend the distance needed to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
DVUSA will notify owners, and Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner Sprinter dealers will inspect and replace the brake hoses, as necessary.
Additionally, the fender liners will be modified.
All services will be performed free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 8, 2020.
Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3BRADVER.
