2018 MERCEDES BENZ C300 - ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:BATTERY:CABLES

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2018 Mercedes-Benz C300 4Matic Coupe, C300 4Matic Cabrio, E300, E300 4Matic, C300, C300 4Matic, C300 Coupe and C300 Cabrio vehicles. The cover for the starter battery may not cover the live positive electrical wire, and in certain crashes, the vehicle's strut brace may deform and short circuit the battery.

  • Hazard
    If the battery is shorted, the emergency door unlocking would be deactivated for an outside responder and the short circuit could increase the risk of a fire.
  • Consumer Action
    MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the positive pole cover, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 23, 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
