2011 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview on May 27, 2016

The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.

Recalls on your Sprinter must be performed by a Sprinter or Dodge dealership, respectively. Mercedes-Benz and Chrysler will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in late June, 2016. If you do receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Sprinter or Dodge dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
