Mercedes-Benz recalls

 

For Models: Mercedes-Benz ML320, Mercedes-Benz ML430, Mercedes-Benz ML500, Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG

Engine, March 31, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

It has been determined that, under certain circumstances, use of the brake pedal may not disengage the cruise control as expected. All other means of disengaging the cruise control should remain effective. If the driver were to "pump" the brake pedal instead of applying consistent force, the level of force necessary to disengage the cruise control may be unusually high. Dealers will perform the repairs necessary to correct this concern. The recall is expected to begin September of 2011.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz E350, Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC

Engine, March 31, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Forty-one vehicles may have a front engine pulley that was manufactured with an insufficient adhesive where the inner mass damper ring attaches to the vibration damper. If the inner ring were to separate with the hood open and the engine running, personal injury could result. Dealers will inspect and replace the affected parts to correct this issue. This recall is expected to begin during April of 2011.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz C300, Mercedes-Benz C300 4MATIC, Mercedes-Benz C350, Mercedes-Benz C63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz E350, Mercedes-Benz E350 4MATIC, Mercedes-Benz E550, Mercedes-Benz E550 4MATIC, Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG

Suspension & Steering, October 31, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Mercedes Benz is recalling 2010 C-Class, model 204; E-Class, model 212; and 2010–2011 E-Class Coupe/Cabriolet, model 207 vehicles due to a loss of power steering fluid that could result in power steering system failure. Owners may not have sufficient control of the vehicle in areas like parking lots, thus increasing the chance of a crash. Dealers will check and re-torque the connection fitting, free of charge.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz G55 AMG, Mercedes-Benz G550, Mercedes-Benz GL550

Engine, January 15, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Mercedes-Benz is recalling 2009 550 G-Class models due to fuel line quick connectors that were not properly connected on the assembly line. In case of a frontal crash, the fuel pump may no longer function, which could lead to fuel loss. In the presence of an ignition source, a fuel leak can result in a fire. Dealers will check the connectors and install a new clamp free of charge.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz ML320 BLUETEC, Mercedes-Benz ML350, Mercedes-Benz ML550, Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG

Electrical & Lights, May 1, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Due to a faulty seal around the tail light assembly, water may enter the rear compartment containing the spare tire. The water could damage the lift gate control module, causing it to fail. The failed module could overheat, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will update the tail light seals and relocate the lift gate control module. This recall is expected to begin during April of 2009. The Mercedes recall number is 2009030003.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz S550, Mercedes-Benz S550 4MATIC, Mercedes-Benz S600, Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Body, Interior & Misc., March 27, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

During production, on fifty-four Mercedes S-Class models, the front and rear door locks may have been mistakenly interchanged. This means that a rear passenger could open the rear door with a simple pull of the interior door handle, and the front passenger could not open by pulling on the interior handle. This situation could affect the safe exiting of the vehicle in a crash or protection against the accidental opening of the rear door by a child. Dealers will inspect the part numbers on all door locks and replace any that are incorrect. The recall began on March 27, 2009. The Mercedes-Benz recall number is 2009030001.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz S550, Mercedes-Benz S550 4MATIC, Mercedes-Benz S600, Mercedes-Benz S65 AMG

Suspension & Steering, February 18, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

One or both front suspension ball joints may fail. Vehicles with significant mileage are more prone to this type of failure. Dealers will inspect and replace the ball joints as necessary. The recall is scheduled to begin during February 2009.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz GL320 CDI, Mercedes-Benz GL450, Mercedes-Benz GL550, Mercedes-Benz ML320 CDI, Mercedes-Benz ML350, Mercedes-Benz ML550, Mercedes-Benz ML63 AMG, Mercedes-Benz R320 CDI, Mercedes-Benz R350

Suspension & Steering, January 28, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Mercedes–Benz is recalling certain 2008 GL-Class, M-Class, and R-Class vehicles for a possible defect in the driving pin used to control power steering oil pressure. If the pin breaks during normal vehicle turning, the steering assist will no longer operate, causing difficulty operating the steering wheel. Dealers will replace the steering gear in affected vehicles.

For Models: Mercedes-Benz ML320, Mercedes-Benz ML350, Mercedes-Benz ML430, Mercedes-Benz ML500, Mercedes-Benz ML55 AMG
