2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class, GLS-Class: Recall Alert

2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE350

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 220 model-year 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE-Class and GLS-Class SUVs

The Problem: The seams on the rear cross-member may have been insufficiently welded. This may allow cracks to form when towing, possibly causing the rear cross-member to detach and become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the rear crossmember for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners May 19. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
