This is to notify you of a new Recall Campaign to check the transmission wiring harness on 1,168 Model Year (“MY”) 2020 GLC-Class (253 platform) vehicles.  The recall campaign will be visible on the www.safercar.gov website and may generate questions from customers.  Affected VINs will be flagged in VMI as “PENDING” on July15, 2022.

 

Issue

Mercedes-Benz AG (“MBAG”), the manufacturer of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, has determined that on certain Model Year (“MY”) 2020 GLC-Class (253 platform) 4-Matic vehicles, the routing of the transmission wiring harness might not meet current production specifications.  In these vehicles, incorrect positioning of the transmission wiring harness could result in contact with the front drive shaft. Over time, chafing could potentially occur, and result in loss of vehicle propulsion while driving, which could potentially increase the risk of a crash. If the failure occurs, the driver would be made aware through a warning message in the instrument cluster.

 

What We’re Doing

MBUSA will conduct a voluntary recall.  An authorized Mercedes-Benz dealer will check the transmission wiring harness on the affected vehicles and replace it, if necessary.

 

Parts

Remedy is not available at this time.

 

Customer Notification Timeline

Customer letters will be mailed after the remedy becomes available.
