Additional information:

Among the nine (9) recalls the NHTSA has announced this October comes news of the following:

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (“MBUSA”) has recalled an estimated 4,702 model year 2018 GLC300 4MATIC Coupe, GLC300, GLC300 4MATIC, GLC350e 4MATIC, GLC43 AMG 4MATIC Coupe, and GLC43 AMG 4MATIC vehicles equipped with LED headlights. The front turn signals may have an incorrect color of pink or violet. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.”

According to the NHTSA, turn signals that are the wrong color may not be as easily recognized by other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

MBUSA will notify registered owners, and dealers will inspect the color of the turn signal, replacing the LED module as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 9, 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
