Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling certain model year 2014 CLA250 vehicles that are equipped with gasoline engines.

The impacted vehicles have a fitting that connects the vacuum line to the brake booster which may break, causing increased force to be needed to apply the brakes.

If the vehicles unexpectedly need increased pressure on the brake pedal to apply the brakes, there would be an increased risk of a crash.

The CLA250 vehicles included in this recall were all manufactured between December 14, 2012 and April 24, 2013.

Mercedes-Benz USA will notify owners of the affected vehicles, and dealers will replace the connector end fitting at the brake booster, free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin in February 2017. Owners with additional questions can contact Mercedes customer service at (800) 367-6372.
