Model year 2016 smart fortwo vehicles recalled

The parking brake lever may have to travel farther before the parking brake engages

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 5,061 model year 2016 smart fortwo vehicles.

The lock nut that secures the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever may loosen over time, resulting in increased parking brake lever travel before the parking brake engages.

As the parking brake lever travel increases, the holding force may decrease to a point where the vehicle is no longer safely secured in all parking situations, allowing the vehicle to unexpectedly move when parked on a slope, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Mercedes-Benz recalls some 2017 models to fix airbag issue

The occupant protection control may malfunction, not properly identifying passenger seat occupants

Mercedes-Benz is recalling several 2017 models because of a potential problem with the airbags. The company said the front passenger occupant detection control unit may have been incorrectly installed. As a result, the front passenger seat occupant may be misclassified.

For example, an adult may be misclassified as a child seat, causing the front passenger air bag to be deactivated in the event of a crash, which could cause injury or death.

Affected models include certain 2017 E300, E300 4Matic, and E43 AMG vehicles.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the routing of the pressure hose of the seat occupancy detection control unit and replace the pressure hose and seat occupancy detection mat if necessary, free of charge.

Mercedes-Benz recalls various vehicles with power steering issue

The power steering system may deactivate during driving

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 70 model year 2013-2015 SL550, 2013-2014 SL63 AMG, 2014-2016 E350, 2014 E350 Cabriolet, E350 Coupe, 2014-2015 S550, 2015 E350 Bluetec, 2015-2016 E400, 2016 E550 Coupe, and Maybach S600 vehicles manufactured August 23, 2012, to August 14, 2015.

The vehicles use an electric power steering system that may have improperly soldered contacts inside the control unit, potentially resulting in the power steering system deactivating while driving.

If the control unit pins lose connection, there would be a loss of electric power steering assist, increasing the risk of a crash. The increase in pin contact resistance can also increase the risk of a fire, even while the vehicle is parked and ignition is off.

Mercedes-Benz C300 and C400 vehicles recalled

Mis-aimed headlamps may not properly illuminated the road

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 9,137 model year 2015 C300 and C400 vehicles manufactured from June 18, 2014, through September 5, 2014.

 

The affected vehicles were assembled with horizontal adjustment mechanisms that allow the owner to change the horizontal adjustment used during the manufacturing process, instead of the proper sealing caps. They, thus, fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

 

If the original horizontal adjustment is used to alter the low beam aim, the mis-aimed headlamp may not properly illuminated the road or cause increased glare to oncoming drivers, which increases the risk of a crash.

 

What to do

 

Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the horizontal adjustment mechanisms on the headlamps with sealing caps on the affected vehicles.

 

The recall began May 23, 2016. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-800-367-6372.
