If you live in Los Angeles or Orange County and own a Dodge Sprinter van, you might want to contact a lemon law lawyer in Southern California. Automotive Fleet Magazine reports that more than 13,500 2002 and 2003 Dodge Sprinters have been recalled because of corroded intake manifolds.
The Dodge Sprinter 2500 and Dodge Sprinter 3500 vans were sold as Dodge and Freightliner vehicles, and if you own one it would be wise to contact a Los Angeles or Orange County lemon law attorney immediately to see if you are eligible for additional compensation.
According to a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, a chemical reaction with the sulfur in the diesel fuel can cause the intake manifold to have formations of sulfuric acid. The recall requires that Dodge dealers inspect the intake manifolds of impacted vehicles and replace them free of charge if there is any damage. However, if there had been previous problems when the vans were originally purchased, a California lemon law case could be made.
