Mercedes-Benz Sprinter recalled


Mercedes-Benz has issued two separate recalls for the same park pawl issue in its Sprinter range.

“Due to a manufacturing defect, the park pawl system that locks the transmission when the shift lever is in park may not operate as intended,” the company says in its recall notice.

“This could result in the vehicle moving or rolling away whilst engaged in park position.

“If the vehicle moves from its parked position while unattended, it may increase the risk of an accident causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.”

If you own an affected vehicle, Mercedes-Benz advises you to contact one of its dealerships as soon as possible to have a free repair carried out.

If you have any further questions, you can contact the Mercedes-Benz Customer Assistance Centre on 1300 300 896.
