Vehicles Affected: More than 200 model-year 2013 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 and GLK350 4matic luxury crossovers manufactured between May 31 and Aug. 2, 2012

The Problem: Voltage in the parking lamp circuit exceeds the maximum allowable value. The higher illumination level may cause glare to oncoming vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Mercedes-Benz began notifying owners this month, and dealers will update the software calibration number of the subject control unit for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Mercedes-Benz at 800-367-6372 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
