The link worked for me yesterday, but it's dead now.

Here's another: https://news.pickuptrucks.com/2019/0...all-alert.html

TL,DR summary: If you have a 2019, don't drive it. It has to be towed to the dealer because the steering shaft may come off at any moment.

I found these words a bit comical:

Quote:
The Problem: The steering shaft that connects to the steering gear may disconnect without warning, causing a sudden loss of steering and increasing the risk of a crash.
Who'd thunk a sudden loss of steering would increase the risk of a crash?

Ha! This is only the beginning with a brand new vehicle. I'm not going to call out the Sprinter. My Transit had a few recalls and there will probably be more.
