make and model information
What are the defects?
The Electronic Stability Program (ESP) software does not correspond to specifications. In rare cases this may cause the brakes to remain slightly engaged after an automatic brake intervention by a driver assistance system (e.g.. cruise control) which would lead to continuous vehicle deceleration.
What are the hazards?
The braking system may overheat and reduce the vehicle's braking ability, resulting in an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
What should consumers do?
Owners will be contacted by direct mail. Owners should contact their local Mercedes-Benz dealership to make an appointment to have the software upgraded.
