Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling certain model-year 2017-2022 Mercedes-Benz Metris vehicles. The connection of the upper and lower fuel hoses to the engine may be insecure, which can result in a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on April 11, 2022. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 877-762-8267 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and repair the fuel hose connections, and replace the clamps and fuel hose, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
