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.
If the engine shuts down unintentionally, there may be an increased risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the ECU software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2016.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
