The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
When deployed in a crash, the passenger front air bag inflator can rupture. As a result, metal fragments from the inflator can strike occupants.
On vehicles equipped with a second row bench seat, the seat belts may not perform as required, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
On some vehicles, the rear suspension springs were produced using the wrong material. The springs may fail prematurely, increasing the risk of a crash.
There are various areas of a vehicle that are bolstered with reinforcements to protect occupants in a collision. One area is the "C-pillar," or the area on the side of the vehicle behind the front doors. On some Sprinter vans, the C-pillar protection pads were not installed, which poses a safety risk.
