According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for approximately 45,000 Mercedes-Benz GLE450, GLE350, and 2020 GLS450, GLE580 and GLS580 SUVs because of safety concerns when these vehicles are using defensive maneuvers to avoid harm. The defect may cause the vehicle to pull to one side. This often happens when a driver is forced to make a quick turn which then results in uneven torque applied which causes the vehicle to pull to one side. Mercedes-Benz indicated that the supplier made mistakes when developing the stability program software which doesn’t meet specifications.
This was issued on February 12, 2021 and identifies 21V071000 as the campaign number.
The recall is expected to begin on April 13, 2021. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 800-367-6372.
This recall is something that all drivers should know about. Under the Song-Beverly Act, car manufacturers are required to repair vehicles while they are under warranty. The law also forces manufacturers to repurchase or “buy back” (in a few instances replace the defective car) cars that the company is unable or unwilling to fix after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
If you have leased or own one of the vehicles listed above or another Mercedes-Benz that has had a number of repair attempts by the dealer but the problem still exists, you need a Pasadena Lemon Lawyer to help you. Don’t let the manufacturer take advantage of you and allow you to continue to drive the defective and unsafe vehicle you are driving.
