Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 4,992 model year 2017 B250e & CLA250, and model year 2017-2018 AMG CLA45, GLA250 & AMG GLA45 vehicles.

The steering shaft bore hole for the universal joint bearing may allow excessive movement that -- over time -- could result in the separation of the bearing and universal joint.

A separated universal joint bearing can cause a loss of steering control and increase the risk of a crash.

What to do

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect, and -- as necessary -- replace the steering shaft free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 31, 2021.

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