Daimler Vans USA is recalling 1,079 2018 and 2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter vans due to a possible defect involving the rear window glass.
The recall affects 1500, 2500, 3500, and 4500 Sprinter vans that may have single-pane safety glass instead of laminated safety glass, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the event of a vehicle rollover or side-impact crash, the fitted side windows may not adequately protect the rear occupants from being ejected, which increases the risk of injury.
Daimler Vans will notify owners and replace the single-pane glass with laminated glass at no cost. The recall should begin on Aug. 12. Owners can contact customer service at 877-762-8267. The number for the recall is VS3VERGLAS.
