Mercedes-Benz Recall

Your BBB uses our consumer education blog to alert the public to product recalls and other valuable information.

Mercedes-Benz is recalling more than 284,000 C-Class cars in the U.S. and Canada because rear lights can fail. The recall affects some C300, C350 and C63 AMG cars from 2008 through 2011 models. Corrosion on a connector can cause the tail, brake or rear turn signal lights to dim or fail, possibly making the cars less visible to other drivers and increasing the risk of a crash. The problem affects nearly 253,000 cars in the U.S., 31,000 in Canada, plus an undetermined number in other countries. The company says if the problem occurs, drivers will see a dashboard warning message.

Dealers will replace bulb holders and any rusted connectors at no cost to owners, though replacement parts may not be available until August or September of 2014.
