Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling approximately 47,667 model-year 2015-2020 Mercedes Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles. The hydraulic power steering return line hoses may detach at their connection points under certain operating conditions, causing hydraulic fluid to leak.
The sudden loss of power steering assist and hydraulic steering fluid leaking onto the roadway could increase the risk of crash.
DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will check the return line connections of the power steering system, correcting it as needed, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin November 2020. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at (877) 762-8267. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236.
DVUSA's number for this campaign is NV3LETULPE.
