2017 MERCEDES BENZ GLE550E - EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS | TIRES:MARKINGS

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Mercedes GLE 550e 4MATIC vehicles. The tire pressure label on the B-pillar lists incorrect seating capacity and front and rear tire dimension information. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FVMSS) number 101, "Tire Selection and Rims."

  • Hazard
    Applying incorrectly sized tires to the vehicle will affect the speedometer reading, which can increase the risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tire pressure label, replacing it, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-877-496-3691.
