Mercedes Recalls 3800 Vehicles in US
  • Mercedes recalling more than 3800 vehicles from the US!

The latest AMG Sedan & AMG 4Matic sedan/coupe and the CLA250 models have all been recalled.

Mercedes-Benz just issued 2 new recalls. A total of 3,813 vehicles have been recalled in the US alone. The first recall consists of the two car models by Mercedes. The 2014 S63 AMG sedan and 2015-2016 S63 AMG 4Matic sedan and coupe are affected.

The recall was issued due to a software error in the engine control unit. The error can compel the high-performance luxury cars to stall when coasting to a stop. The engine then fails to restart after the breaks have been released.

To move the car forward the driver has to shift to neutral or go through ignition after parking. The issue was first detected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, according to AutoBlog

The repairs on the recalled cars will begin on the 8th of December, 2015. The repair will involve an update to the engine control unit software. The 2015 S63 AMG 4Matic Coupe were already recalled by BMW previously. The previous recall was about faulty seat belts. 

Mercedes is also recalling the 2015 CLA250, CLA250 4Matic, GLA250, GLA250 4Matic, and the 2016 SLK300. More than 857 vehicles are being recalled. The error is due to the weld on the camshafts which might be in the wrong place.

The wrong placement could lead to breakage of important parts and damage the engine. The recall will be affective by November 30th. Dealers will replace the affected camshafts as a precautionary measure.
