Daimler Vans USA, LLC "DVUSA" is recalling certain 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the abutting wedge, a component attached to the door jamb to make opening the door easier after a severe frontal impact, may have been installed incorrectly.
If a vehicle that has an incorrectly installed abutting wedge is involved in a severe frontal accident, a greater force may be necessary to open the doors, increasing the risk of injury.
DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the installation of the abutting wedge on the driver and front passenger side, correcting it, as necessary, free of charge. DVUSA issued owners an interim notification on November 22, 2019. The recall began February 10, 2020. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3KEIL.
