2006 Mercedes-Benz ML500 Recall Details

RepairPal Expert Overview on August 1, 2008

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.

Vehicles equipped with the Flex-N-Gate trailer hitch feature a hitch receiver welded to an attachment bar. This then bolts to the frame as the trailer hitch. There is concern that the weld that attaches the receiver to the bar may be insufficient in strength. The hitch could come apart, which could become a road hazard.

We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall. 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.
