Daimler Vans USA Recalls Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinters Due to Faulty Brake Lights

Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) recalled 56,534 model year 2019-2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinters and Freightliner Sprinters due to potential safety risk.

The retaining washer and bolt that connect the brake pedal to the bearing block, may come loose and detach. This could cause the brake lights to stay illuminated, even when the brake pedal is not pressed.

Malfunctioning brake lights can fail to alert other motorists of the driver’s intention, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin April 19, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
