Sprinter has announced that they will be recalling certain models of the 2008 Dodge Sprinter. Sprinter is recalling 40 2007-2008 Dodge and Freightliner Sprinter 3500 Cargo vans for failing to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard NO. 105, ‘Hydraulic and electric brake systems’. Some of these vans may not have had the correct brake components installed.
This standard specifies requirements for vehicles equipped with hydraulic and electric service brake systems, and associated parking brake systems. The purpose of this standard is to insure safe braking performance under normal and emergency conditions.
Dealers will install the appropriate master brake cylinders and brake fluid reservoirs. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this campaign. Owners may contact Sprinter at 1-800-992-1997.
