Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 371 model year 2013 GLK250s with 4-cylinder diesel engines.
The incorrect type of transmission fluid filter and overflow pipe may have been installed during a service repair, which could result in a transmission fluid leak or control module failure.
A transmission fluid leak can increase the risk of a fire.
In addition, a transmission control module failure could result in a vehicle stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Dealers will replace the overflow pipe and transmission fluid filter free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed September 10, 2021.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
