Daimler Vans USA (DVUSA) is recalling more than 270 model year 2016 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vehicles.
The bolts connecting the lower seatbelt to the rear bench seat may not have been properly tightened.
If the bolts were not properly tightened, the seatbelt may fail to secure the seat occupant in the event of a crash.
The recall is expected to begin in October 2016.
DVUSA will notify owners, and Sprinter dealers will inspect the connecting bolts, tightening them as necessary, free of charge.
