Identifying features

What are the defects?

Due to a software issue some functions of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) multimedia system may not deactivate when the vehicle starts moving. This can result in driver distraction potentially drawing their attention away from the road.

What are the hazards?

If the driver is distracted while the vehicle is in motion this will increase the risk of an accident possibly causing serious injury or death.

What should consumers do?

No action required by consumers, the software will be updated "over the air" not requiring a workshop visit. This will be done with no cost to the owners.
