The low beam headlights may not be adjusted properly

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 996 model year 2016-2017 S550 Coupe 4MATICs, S63 AMG Coupe 4MATICs, S65 AMG Coupes and S63 AMG Convertible 4Matics manufactured September 3, 2015, to February 4, 2016.

The low beam headlights on the affected vehicles may not be adjusted properly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

If the low-beam headlights are out of adjustment, the driver's visibility may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and correct the headlight adjustment, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2016.

Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
