Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling two model year 2020 GLE 350s.
The connection of the locking ring between the front and rear part of the drive shaft might not have been installed correctly, possibly resulting in a loss of power transfer between the transfer case and the rear axle differential.
If the transfer case disconnects from the rear axle differential the vehicle could stall, posing the risk of a crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the drive shaft free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin December 8, 2020.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
