Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 9,044 model year 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 4Matics, GLE350s, GLS450 4Matics, GLS550 4matics, GLE43 AMG 4Matics, GLE63 AMG 4Matics, GLE63S AMG 4Matics, and GLS63 AMG 4Matics.
The rear brake caliper pistons may not have been correctly coated, causing gas to become temporarily released into the rear brake hydraulic circuit, reducing braking performance and increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will bleed the rear axle brake system, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in early September 2018.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
