If the seat moves in the event of a crash, the seat occupant would be at an increased risk of injury.

NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V853000

Manufacturer Midwest Automotive Designs, LLC

Components SEAT BELTS

Potential Number of Units Affected 28

Summary

Midwest Automotive Designs, LLC (Midwest) is recalling certain model year 2016 Mercedes Benz Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vehicles manufactured July 1, 2016, to September 30, 2016, equipped with certain left side seat adjusters, model number 486077 manufactured by Atwood. The affected seat adjusters may allow the seats to move in the event of a crash.

Midwest will notify owners, and dealers will replace the left slide track, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2016. Owners may contact Midwest customer service at 1-574-522-4878.
