Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 659 model year 2016-2017 AMG GTS vehicles.
The bonding between the carbon-fiber driveshaft and the engine/transmission flange may be insufficient, causing the driveshaft to separate while in motion.
Separation of the driveshaft could result in a loss of drive, increasing the risk of crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the carbon-fiber draft shaft, including the flange free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin August 13, 2019.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
