Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall of 423 model year 2015 ML250, ML350, ML350 4Matic, ML400 4Matic, ML63 AMG, and 2016 GLE450 AMG 4Matic vehicles.

These vehicles may have had the right seat belt anchor bolt in the rear of the vehicle incorrectly installed.

As such, if the vehicle crashes, the bolt may not secure the passenger, increasing the risk of injury.

The company will notify owners and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, correct the installation of the affected anchor bolt free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in July 2016.
