Without the instrument cluster displaying important information such as the vehicle’s speed, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, “Control and Displays.”
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the instrument cluster display software, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin in late May 2017.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
