Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 8,186 model year 2020 GLE350s and GLE450s.
The lighting control unit may malfunction and cause the left exterior reverse light to remain illuminated after the transmission is shifted into a different gear.
If the reverse light remains illuminated in a gear other than reverse, it may cause confusion about the driver's intention to other motorists, and increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the lighting control unit free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 6, 2021.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
