RepairPal Expert Overview
The system that provides power steering assistance may stop working, resulting in additional efforts being required to turn the steering wheel while driving. This would increase risk of a crash.
Recall repairs on your Mercedes Benz vehicle must be performed by a Mercedes Benz dealership. Mercedes Benz will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in February 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Mercedes Benz dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The electric power steering system may have improperly soldered contacts inside the control unit. This could result in the power assist failing while driving. Dealers will replace the electric power steering control unit free of charge to resolve the concern.
