Most Recent Mercedes-Benz ML500 Recall

On March 31, 2011, Mercedes-Benz recalled 136,751 Mercedes-Benz ML500. Mercedes-benz is recalling certain model year 2000-2002 m-class and model year 2000-2004 m-class amg vehicles. the cruise control system in the affected vehicles allows the driver to disengage the system in a number of ways, including tapping the brake pedal, using the cruise control stalk, or braking the vehicle enough to reach a certain rate of deceleration. mercedes-benz has determined that under certain circumstances use of the brake pedal may not automatically disengage cruise control as expected by the driver, although the other means of deactivating cruise control remain fully operative. specifically, where the driver pumps the brakes rather than applying consistent pedal force, the level of force required may be unusually high.

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.

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.

The accelerator pedal of the car is attached by mounting studs and the nuts that secure it. Some of these nuts may be loose, which can allow the pedal to become unstable.
