Vehicles Affected: Approximately 900 model-year 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 SUVs manufactured between June 16 and Nov. 3, 2015, and model-year 2016 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 4Matic SUVs manufactured between July 16 and Nov. 3, 2015
The Problem: The steering columns in the affected vehicles may have the wiring harness for the switch module incorrectly routed. As a result the harness may chafe and the airbag may unexpectedly deploy, or the engine may stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the wiring harnesses and properly reroute them as necessary, and replace any damaged harnesses, for free.
What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners in April. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
