Handful of Sprinter vans recalled over welding fault
The weld joint could fail in a side-on collision

 

Mercedes-Benz Australia is recalling five of its VS30 Sprinter vans over a welding issue.

The join where the B-pillar meets the floor may not be welded properly in the affected vehicles, which were made in 2020.

According to Product Safety Australia, if the vans were involved in a side-on crash, the weld joint could fail – putting the fuel tank at risk and increasing the likelihood of injury for the driver and any passengers.
