Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 5,680 model year 2020 GLB250s.
Water may enter through the wheel well area into the front occupant foot wells, potentially damaging certain electrical components.
This may result in the instrument cluster going blank, an engine stall while driving, or the vehicle may not start.
Either a blank instrument cluster display or an engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Dealers will seal the vehicle body in the wheel well area and inspect the front foot wells for water intrusion, repairing -- as necessary -- free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 27, 2021.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
