According to the recently released report, Mercedes-Benz is said to have recalled 1.29 million vehicles due to a malfunction in the eCall software. It is alleged that due to Mercedes’ eCall software on the affected vehicles, the system will not be able to maintain the correct position of the vehicle in the event of a user crash. This negative situation is reported to be of a size that endangers the lives of people. It is reported that the recall process will include 2016-2021 model vehicles.
According to the statement made by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the list of recalled vehicles includes: CLA-Class, GLA-Class, gle-Class, GLS-Class SLC-Class A-Class, GT Class, C-Class, E- Class, S-Class, CLS-Class, SL-Class, B-Class, GLB-Class, GLC-Class and G-Class vehicles.
According to Mercedes-Benz, there are currently no reports of property damage or personal injury due to this malfunction. The company is also working on free software updates that will be available at the dealer center. The recall will begin on April 6.
Mercedes-Benz Will Recall Over 1 Million Vehicles!
According to Mercedes-Benz; “A temporary collapse of the power supply of the communication module due to a collision could cause the vehicle position to be inaccurate during a potential emergency call. However, other functions of the automatic and manual emergency call function remain fully operational”.
Last year, Mercedes-Benz had to investigate the failure of its automatic vehicles in Europe in the eCall system. At that time, the investigation revealed that there were multiple cases in his system reporting an incorrect location for the car.
Mercedes-Benz is doing very well and its products are available in different parts of the world. As of now, there is no information on the details of the recall. However, we hope to learn more about the recall in the coming weeks.
