The gear shift lever may not work, increasing the risk of a crash

Mercedes-Benz is recalling some 2017 E300 and E300 4Matic vehicles that may have a damaged steering column-mounted shift lever module. If the internal circuit board is damaged, moving the shift lever will not select a transmission gear.

Mercedes-Benz recalls various GLE Class vehicles

The low beam headlights may not be adjusted properly

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 2,215 model year 2016-2017 GLE 300d 4MATIC, GLE 350, GLE 350 4MATIC, and GLE 400 4MATIC vehicles manufactured October 14, 2015, to November 23, 2015.

The vehicles' low beam headlights may not be adjusted properly. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Assoc. Equipment."

If the low-beam headlights are out of adjustment, the driver's visibility may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.

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.

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 5,826 model year 2016 GLE450 AMG 4Matic Coupes manufactured December 10, 2014, to June 6, 2016.

An error within the engine control unit (ECU) software may allow the engine to shut-down while the vehicle is braking, possibly confusing the driver into thinking the shut-down was planned due to the ECO start/stop function.
