Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 1,701 model year 2018 Mercedes-Maybach S560s & S560 4Matics & Mercedes S450s 4Matic, S450, S560, S560 4Matics, and S560 Coupe 4Matics.

The electrical power bars inside the pre-fuse box in the trunk may not have been secured properly.

Failure to secure the power bars securely can cause higher electrical resistance increasing the risk of a fire. Additionally, an intermittent contact between the power bars could lead to a loss of vehicle functions.

The engine operation, the seat belt functions and the instrument cluster could be impaired, increasing the risk of a crash and injuries.

What to do

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the pre-fuse box, replacing it as necessary, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin August 15, 2018.

Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
