Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling four model year 2021 S580 4Matics and S500 4Matics.
The electrical connector to the steering column module may not be secured properly, which can disable gear shifts and/or safety features, including the electronic stability program, the driver's air bag, and turn signal indicators.
Disabled safety features or the inability to shift gears can increase the risk of a crash or injury.
What to do
Dealers will inspect and reinstall the cover for the electrical connector -- as necessary -- free of charge.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on May 31, 2022.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
