Does my luxury car have a dangerous recall notice?

On Behalf of | May 23, 2022 | Car Accidents |

Driving a Mercedes comes with a certain feeling of luxury. When you own one of these vehicles, you expect a specific standard of safety and quality.

It can be challenging to keep track of recall notices. Sometimes they get lost in the mail. Other times, it can be a significant inconvenience to take your vehicle in for a recall service.

Here’s what you should know about the most recent recalls for Mercedes vehicles.

Electrical defects

There are specific models of the Mercedes-Benz GLE and GLS SUVs that have an electrical issue that could lead to a fire. Unfortunately, there is no warning before there is a problem due to the type of electrical failure. However, there will be a warning when the electrical problem occurs.

This electrical failure can cause the connection to overheat, leading to a fire. So far, there have been no reported injuries or crashes from this problem. However, it is still essential to get the vehicle repaired.

Camera errors

There is a significant recall of more than 100,000 Mercedes-Benz sedans and SUVs to address issues with the rearview camera. Currently, there is an error with the software in some models that can prevent proper transmission from the camera.

The error is causing a delay in the transmission, meaning that it no longer meets National Highway Traffic Safety Administration regulations for visibility. So far, the recall affects select vehicles from between the 2018 and 2021 model years.

While it can be frustrating to get service done to remedy a recall, these can seriously impact your safety while driving. Responding quickly to a vehicle recall is essential for keeping your car in excellent repair.
