Default RECALL: 2018-2019 Sprinter - Hood may Open While Driving

Moderators: I can't recall when the models changed from NCV3 to VS30, so if you want to replicate this in the appropriate forum, feel free. I think these are VS30 models?

September 18, 2019 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 19V665000
Hood may Open While Driving
A hood that opens while driving can reduce the driver's visibility, increasing the risk of a crash.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 19V665000

Manufacturer Daimler Vans USA, LLC

Components LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES

Potential Number of Units Affected 52,004

Summary

Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles. The screw connection on the upper hood catch may have been improperly tightened. As a result, factors such as the vehicle's speed, wind resistance and road conditions may cause the hood to open while the vehicle is being driven.

Remedy

DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the screw connection, tightening it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 1, 2019. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267. DVUSA's number for this recall is VS3HAUBOSS.
