Recall 17V364000

Tire Pressure Listed On Tire Label Is Too Low

Recall Details

The tire pressure label on the driver's door jam lists the proper tire pressure as too low for the vehicle. Dealers will check and replace the tire label as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The tire pressure that is listed on the tire label on the driver's door jam area is too low for the vehicle. If the tire air pressure is set to this low level, tire damage could occur, possibly resulting in an accident.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Sprinter must be performed by a Sprinter dealership. Daimler Vehicles USA will notify known owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is not available as of the time of this writing.) If you do not 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 incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
