Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling 562 model year 2019-2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris right-hand drive vehicles.

The company said the screwed fittings between the rigid steel brake lines routed through the underbody of the vehicle and the brake hoses in the area of the front and rear axles may not have been correctly installed.

The connection between the brake line and the brake hose may leak, causing a sudden loss of brake fluids, affecting braking performance and increasing the risk of a crash.

As regards what to do, the DVUSA will notify vehicle owners, and dealers will check the affected fittings at the connection points of the brake lines to the brake hoses, correcting them ─ as necessary─ free of charge.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification.

Affected owners may contact DVUSA Customer Service on (877) 762-8267, while DVUSA’s number for this recall is VS2BREMPOS.
