On Oct. 21, 2022, Mercedes-Benz issued a recall on 2019-2022 Sprinters because of the risk of vehicle rollaway. The guide bushing on the parking pawl may fatigue, which can cause the parking pawl not to engage. A total of 124,305 vans are potentially affected.
To remedy the issue, dealers will update the software of various control units, including the electronic stability and transmission control units, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed December 19, 2022.
This recall has resulted in an immediate stop sale of all 2019-2022 Sprinters until this issue is resolved.
