Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 17 model year 2021 GLE450s and AMG GLE53s.

The ground connection bolts in the passenger-side footwell for the electric heater may be improperly tightened.

Loose ground connection bolts on the electric heater may cause the wiring to overheat, increasing the risk of a fire.

What to do

Dealers will check the electric heater ground connection and repair it -- as necessary -- free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on January 18, 2022.

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