    Summary

    Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2015 CLS 400 and CLS 400 4matic, 2012-2015 CLS 550 and CLS 550 4matic, 2012-2013 CLS 63, 2014 CLS 63, and 2014-2015 CLS 63P.

    Reduced rear side marker illumination may prevent other drivers from seeing the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
