The Sprinter airbag recalls have been happening for several years. In fact, most manufacturers have been selling vehicles with the same airbags that were already being recalled since they were no other options available. Actual recalls are prioritized by NHTSA based on the location of the vehicle and the age of the vehicle. Older vehicles in high humidity hot locations got recalled first and now newer vehicles in lower humidity colder areas are getting recalled. I donít know if the supply of replacement airbags has caught up with demand at this point and if any new vehicles are still being sold with airbags that will eventually be recalled.
Our 2008 Sprinter in Michigan got recalled a couple years ago.
