Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 2,535 model year 2020 GLC300, GLC350e, GLC43 AMG, and GLC63 AMG vehicles.
The power steering control unit wiring harness may have been damaged during the production process, possibly resulting in a loss of power steering assist or an electrical short-circuit.
A loss of power steering assist can increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, if the wiring harness short-circuits, there is a risk of fire.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the wiring harness, and replace it -- if necessary -- free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 22, 2020.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
