Mercedes-Benz Issues Recall over Windshield Issue

Mercedes-Benz USA has issued a recall for several models because of a defect that could cause the windshield to separate from the vehicle.

Recalled models include 2016 GLE350 4Matic and GLS 450 4Matic,  2017 GLE 400 4Matic, GLE 350 4Matic, GLE 350, GLE 550E 4Matic, GLE 63 AMG, GLE 63S AMG, GLE 43 AMG 4Matic Coupe, GLE 63S AMG 4Matic Coupe, GLS 450 4Matic, GLS 550 4Matic, and GLS 63 AMG 4Matic.

According to the recall, the windshield bond could be insufficient for those models, which could cause the glass to separate from the vehicle in a crash. That, in turn, could leave the passenger front air bag unsupported after it deploys, increasing the risk of injury.

Mercedes-Benz USA will notify owners about the problem. Dealers will replace the windshield free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. For more information, contact Mercedes-Benz USA at 1-800-367-6372.

Additionally, information on the recall can be found by calling National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or visiting
