Recalls

The recall information below is provided directly from the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)
US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 12V533000
Mfg's Report Date: NOV 06, 2012
Component: LATCHES/LOCKS/LINKAGES:HOOD:LATCH
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 23


Summary:
Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain model year 2012 CLS550 and CLS550 4Matic vehicles, manufactured December 01, 2011, through December 13, 2011. The bolts that hold the hood's secondary latch striker may have been insufficiently tightened.

Consequence:
The reduced torque of the striker bolts might lead to a loosening of the bolts. If two of the four bolts securing the striker became loose, the secondary hood latch function would become ineffective. If this problem combines with a failure of the primary hood lock or if the hood is not properly closed, the hood could open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Remedy:
Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will check and retighten the bolts as necessary. The recall campaign is expected to begin in December 2012. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
