Lightbulb Dodge Sprinter passenger vans face seatbelt recall

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced on its website that Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain 2008-2011 model year Sprinter vans for a passenger compartment seatbelt issue. The recall, which is only valid for Sprinter vans with a second row bench seat, concerns seat belts that might not lock as required. Additionally, NHTSA adds that "the assembly loop may not perform to minimum force requirements."

Seatbelt recalls are always serious considering that they are typically the first, best line of defense in the event of an accident. In such cases, passengers with defective belts may not be properly fastened, which could lead to increased risk of injury or death.

Since Mercedes-Benz took over responsibility for the sales and service of all Sprinter Vans (including Dodge-branded models) back in 2009, owners of affected vehicles will need to take their vans to the nearest Mercedes retail outlet for repairs. The dealers will inspect and replace any seat belt assemblies that don't meet requirements. Hit the jump to read over the NHTSA press release.
