Daimler Vans USA Recalls Mercedes Benz Sprinters With Electric Sliding Door Due to Incorrect Lock of the Electric Sliding Door

Daimler Vans USA recalled 56 model year 2019-2020 Mercedes Benz Sprinters with an optional electric sliding door.

The auxiliary lock on the sliding door may be the incorrect type for an electric sliding door.

The sliding door could dislocate more than intended in a crash and increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

DVUSA will notify owners, while dealers will convert the sliding door from electric to manual function free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin April 12, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
