Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 12 model year 2019 Metris vans [platform 447 (VS20)] with gasoline engines and automatic transmissions.

The driveshaft may not be attached to the intermediate bearing correctly, causing excessive wear to the driveshaft joint and excessive vibrations.

Damage to the driveshaft joint could result in a loss of drive, increasing the risk of a crash. Excessive vibrations may cause the front airbags to deploy unexpectedly, increasing the risk of injury.

What to do

DVUSA will notify owners and dealers will inspect the drive shaft, replacing it -- as necessary -- free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin July 24, 2020.

Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3DREIGE.
