The affected vehicles were built with a fuel feed line that has a single flare fitting instead of a double flare fitting.
If the fuel feed line has the incorrect flare fitting, the connection between the fuel hose and the fuel feed line might develop a leak or may completely disconnect.
Leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire and if the fuel feed line disconnects, the vehicle would stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will install the correct fuel line, free of charge.
