2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: Recall Alert

2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500

By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 4,300 model-year 2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter work vans

The Problem: The steering shaft that connects to the steering gear may disconnect without warning, causing a sudden loss of steering and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Mercedes-Benz will advise owners to stop driving the van immediately. Dealers will inspect the bolts connecting the steering shaft to the steering gear, fully tightening or adjusting them, as necessary, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz did not immediately provide an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

So I take it Mercedes will come pick up the sprinter to go get it inspected since owners are advise to stop driving immediately.

It would be a serious risk to do otherwise.

No. You're to go to the dealership.

the vehicle is either safe to drive or it isn't. Unless you can operate the van with the assurance that it's safe on the road, you'd better leave it parked. Let the dealer tow it.

WOW that's an exciting one.

Will Mercedes be sending the techs out to inspect/repair or towing them all in to dealers?

They very clearly told everyone to STOP driving it.

Will they send a tow truck to pick up the van to take it to the dealer? It says to stop driving immediately.

Loss os steering is really no big deal if you don't have to turn.

Lose 1 pound a day http://5dayweightlossplan.com

so Mike---would your weight loss plan actually help people lose 365 pounds per year?

Pap, How big a boy are you?

Not that big.

My point is that losing a pound a day is unhealthy for all but a few folks who are really fat. Losing two or three pounds a month is a better more sustainable plan for most people.

Doctors agree on that.

STOP eating bread. The Wheat Belly book.

there isn't a single approach that works for everybody.

But for people whose ancestors came from the cold/dark ice-age places like Scandinavia, the UK and northwestern Russia (light skin, fair eyes--green/blue) some kind of low-carb scheme is best for anyone who has a LOT of pounds to lose.

Wheat isn't the only culprit. Rice, Corn, Soy, raw dairy products all are rich in carbs. My ancestors lived on fish and anything else they could capture or kill. Low carb is a fast way to lose up to 50 pounds for me.

I enjoyed over read your blog post. This was actually what i was looking for and i am glad to came here!
