Daimler AG’s Mercedes-Benz has recalled 136,750 M-Class and M-Class AMG vehicles in the United States made from 1999 to 2004 for issues related to cruise control that may lead to a crash. Repairs will be made at Mercedes dealerships beginning in September.
NHTSA says applying the brakes to disengage cruise control may fail, increasing the chances of a crash. The Agency also says there are other ways, including working a “cruise control stalk” or pumping the brakes, that will still engage the system in the event that applying the brakes fails. The recall was prompted by several complaints from consumers, according to NHTSA. The recall covers model years 2000-2002 M-Class and 2000-2004 M-Class AMG vehicles.
