2007-16 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: Takata recall initiated

Mercedes-Benz has initiated its Takata recall for the Sprinter to replace both the driver and passenger inflators replaced. As with all Takata recalls, a combination of heat and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade over time. If a vehicle with an affected inflator is involved in an accident, there's a risk the inflator housing could rupture under too much internal pressure, sending shrapnel flying into the cabin.
