Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 26 model year 2019 Mercedes Benz and Freightliner Sprinters.

The incorrect leaf spring shims may have been installed between the rear axle and the leaf springs possibly affecting the vehicle's handling and increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the leaf spring shims on both sides, renew the spring brackets, check the rubber buffers for wear, renewing them if necessary, and adjust the headlamps free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification.

Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3LEFSPRI.
