Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 9,791 model year 2018-2019 S560s and Maybach S560s with 4.0L 8-cylinder gasoline-engines.
Two engine oil plugs may not withstand high engine loads during driving, possibly resulting in an engine oil leak.
An engine oil leak can spill on to the road and cause slippery road conditions.
Additionally, if the engine runs out of oil it can cause an engine stall during driving.
Either of these can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the engine oil plugs free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 19, 2020. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
