Vehicles Affected: Approximately 28,000 model-year 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 and C400 4Matic sedans manufactured between Jan. 27 and Dec. 1, 2014

The Problem: Due to an error in the electric power steering control unit software, a loss of electric power steering assist could occur, necessitating extra steering effort, particularly at lower speeds, and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will update the power steering software for free.
