Winnebago Industries is recalling certain model year 2015 Winnebago ERA, View, and Itasca Navion vehicles manufactured Sept. 11, 2014, to Feb. 27 and built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Chassis, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In the affected vehicles, the abutting wedge, a component attached to the door jam to make opening the door easier after a severe frontal impact, may have been installed incorrectly.
If a vehicle that has an incorrectly installed abutting wedge is involved in a severe frontal accident, a greater force may be necessary to open the doors, increasing the risk of injury.
Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will check the installation of the abutting wedge, correcting it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz Sprinter customer service at 1-877-762-8267.
