2007-16 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter: Takata recall initiated

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...

2019 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter review: First drive

The fact so many discerning fleets choose it is a pretty telling recommendation, though go look at the Crafter and Transit too.
