RepairPal Expert Overview
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.
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.
