Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 12,799 model year 2020 GLE 350s, GLE 450s, GLE 580s, GLS 450s, and GLS 580s with an optional illuminated Mercedes-Benz star logo in the front grill.
The star logo's electrical ground connection may not be installed properly, potentially affecting the function of other components that share the same ground connection, such as the power steering control unit, wiper motor, and/or the left headlight.
A malfunction of any of these components could pose the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the ground connection free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 8, 2020.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
