Vehicles Affected: Approximately 130 model-year 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE350 and GLE450 SUVs
The Problem: The connection between the fuel filler pipe and the fuel tank may have been improperly welded, allowing a fuel leak that, in the presence of an ignition source, can increase the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel tank for free.
What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners Oct. 1. 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.
