Daimler Vans USA Recalls Mercedes-Benz Metris Vans Due to Improperly Welded Seat Frame

Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) recalled three model year 2021 Mercedes-Benz Metris vans with an adjustable front passenger seat due to a potential safety risk.

The front passenger seat frame base may not have been welded properly.

An improperly welded seat frame base may have reduced stability, which can increase the risk of injury to the occupant in a crash.

DVUSA will notify owners, while dealers will replace the seat frame base free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin March 29, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
