Vehicles Affected: Approximately 30,000 model-year 2012-15 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class sedans; only certain model-year 2015 CLS 400 sand CLS 400 4Matics, model-year 2012-15 CLS 550s and CLS 550 4Matics, model-year 2012-15 CLS 63 sedans and model-year 2014-15 CLS 63Ps are affected.

The Problem: In these vehicles, the LED taillights may not illuminate the sides of the sedan, reducing the rear side visibility of the car and increasing the risk of a crash. 

The Fix: Dealers will update the lighting controller software for free.
