Mercedes-Benz ML500 Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview on March 31, 2011

Under certain circumstances, the cruise control may not disengage as expected when the brake pedal is depressed. Failure of the cruise control to disengage could increase the risk of a crash.

This could be considered a medium priority recall. We recommend you not use your cruise control until the recall has been performed since the cruise control can remain engaged without warning. Please contact your Mercedes-Benz dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you as to what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.

There are several computers in the vehicle and each computer requires proper software to operate the each vehicle system. One particular software calibration on this vehicle was erroneous from the factory and could keep the fuel system powered after an accident. This can cause fuel to continue to flow even after an accident.

Please contact your Mercedes-Benz dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
