Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 224 model year 2020 GLE350s, GLE450s and GLS450s.
The seams on the rear crossmember may have been insufficiently welded, which may allow cracks to form when towing, possibly causing the rear crossmember to detach from the vehicle.
If the rear crossmember detaches from the vehicle, it can become a road hazard and increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear crossmember free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 19, 2020.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
