The vehicles may be missing a brake inspection gauge

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 42,742 of the following vehicles:

  • Model year 2019-2020 A220s,
  • Model year 2020 CLA250s, GLB250s, AMG A35s, AMG CLA45s & AMG CLA35s and
  • Model year 2021 GLA250s.

The vehicles may not be equipped with an inspection gauge to check the wear of the rear brake pads.

In addition, information for using this inspection gauge might not be included in the owner's manual.

Driving with worn brake pads can reduce braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will install an inspection gauge and provide supplemental owner's manual information free of charge.

Notification letters are expected to be mailed to owners December 31, 2023.

Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
