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 van 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.

A list of affected VINs can be found here.

Owners of the vehicles, sold between October 13, 2020 and November 30, 2020, are advised to contact their preferred Mercedes-Benz dealer for a free of charge repair.
