Dodge Sprinter Recall Information

MARCH 2011 -- Mercedes Benz is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 2500 and 3500 Sprinter vehicles equipped with an optional three-seat bench in the passenger compartment. The seat benches in the second seating row may have been equipped with safety belts that do not meet the minimum requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208, "Occupant Protection in Interior Impact," and Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies." First, those safety belts may not lock as required. Second, the assembly loop may not perform to minimum force requirements. In the event of a crash, the safety belts in these vehicles may not perform as required such that a seat occupant may not be properly restrained, increasing the risk of injury or death in the event of a crash. Mercedes-Benz will inspect and replace any seat belt assemblies that do not meet the requirements free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during May 2011.  . 11V-210

NOVEMBER 2008 -- Sprinter is recalling 6,101 MY 2007 Dodge and Freightliner Sprinter 2500 and 3500 utility vans. The crankshaft sensor in certain diesel engines could fail due to separation of bond wires from the lead frame in the sensor. This results in an interruption in the electrical connection in the chip housing of the sensor. When this happens, the vehicles may lose power rather than enter a limp-home mode. In addition, the vehicle cannot be restarted after failure of the electrical connection in the sensor, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the crankshaft sensors. The recall is expected to begin during February 2008. 07V594
