SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. – Daimler Vans USA, LLC is recalling certain 2012-2018 Freightliner and Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 3500 vans upfitted into campers or recreational vehicles due to a faulty electronic-stability control (ESC) module.
The affected population covers 48,667 vans which might suffer from a disabled ESC, according to National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) Part 573 Safety Recall Report 21V-042.
If ESC becomes disabled (which would be due to a malfunctioning rear-wheel speed sensor), vehicle driving stability may be impacted under certain driving conditions, increasing the risk of a crash.

Daimler Vans was scheduled to notify Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner dealers this week and is scheduled to begin notifying owners next week as to the recall. Customers will be notified a second time when parts to fix the problem become available.
Owners will be instructed to bring their vans to certified dealers which will replace the rear-wheel speed sensor with a more robust sensor, free of charge.
