Mercedes-Benz has discovered a power-steering problem with its highly touted Sprinter vans.




The cause of the problem is a power-steering fluid leak, which can make it difficult to turn the wheel of the vehicles, Mercedes-Benz spokeswoman Catherine Gebhardt told Business Insider.




This has impacted Amazon, which recently became Daimler AG's biggest Sprinter buyer with an order of 20,000 Prime-branded Sprinter vans for its last-mile delivery program. Amazon had previously ordered 5,000 vans.




One Amazon delivery service provider discovered the power-steering problem in about a quarter of its Mercedes-Benz vans, according to an employee of the courier company who asked to remain anonymous.

This has impacted Amazon, which recently became Daimler AG's biggest buyer of Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vans with an order of 20,000 vehicles — up from a previous order of 5,000 vans — for its growing last-mile delivery program. The program enables courier companies to lease the vans, which are emblazoned with the Prime logo, for Amazon package deliveries.
