Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 98 model year 2021 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinters.

The front axle fender liner and brake hose may be too close, allowing the fender liner to contact and damage the brake hose.

A damaged brake hose may leak brake fluid, extending the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect the condition and clearance of the brake hose, modify the fender liner trim, and replace the brake hose -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on January 24, 2022.

Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3BAURAVE.
