Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 2,529 model year 2018 GLE350s, GLE43 AMGs, and GLE400s with Continental tires.
The vehicles' tires were cured for too long during production.
Over cured tires may develop a break in the sidewall, resulting in sudden air loss or belt edge separation which could lead to tread/belt loss.
Either condition can cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tires, and replace them -- as necessary -- free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 27, 2021.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
