Mercedes Benz recalls some 2017 models to fix shift lever problem

The gear shift lever may not work, increasing the risk of a crash

Mercedes-Benz is recalling some 2017 E300 and E300 4Matic vehicles that may have a damaged steering column-mounted shift lever module. If the internal circuit board is damaged, moving the shift lever will not select a transmission gear.

If the vehicle does not move forward or backward as selected by the driver with the shift lever, there is an increased risk of a crash.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering column-mounted shift lever module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2017. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to
