Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 4,424 model year 2019 Mercedes Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles.
The connecting screws on the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) pipe may not have been tightened correctly.
If the connecting screws are not properly tightened, hot exhaust gases may leak from the EGR pipe, increasing the risk of a fire.
What to do
DVUSA will notify owners, and Mercedes-Benz or Freightliner Sprinter dealers will renew the screw connection and the flange seals on the exhaust gas recirculation pipe 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 VS3AGROHR.
