Recall 16V351000

Super High Roof Vehicles Not Equipped With Required Crash Pads

Recall Details

For vehicles configured with super-high roofs, there may not have been enough crash pads equipped with the vehicle. Dealers will install the required crash pads free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles configured for and equipped with super-high roofs, there may not be enough crash pads installed that protect occupants in a crash. This increases risk of occupant injury.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Sprinter must be performed by a Sprinter dealership. Sprinter will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in 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 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.
