Mercedes-Benz is recalling approximately 5,882 model year 2017 vehicles due to a defective center console latch.

The vehicles being recalled include the 2017 GLE 400 4Matic, GLE 350 4Matic, GLE 350, GLE 550E 4Matic, GLE 63 AMG, GLE 63S AMG, GLE 43 AMG 4Matic Coupe, GLE 63S AMG 4Matic Coupe, GLS 450 4Matic, GLS 550 4Matic, and GLS 63 AMG 4Matic.

In certain types of crash events, the center console on the affected vehicles may unlatch, allowing any unsecured objects to strike occupants, increasing their risk of injury.

Mercedes-Benz will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and Mercedes dealers will modify the center console so that it remains latched in a crash, free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin in early March 2017.

Owners with any additional questions or concerns about this recall can contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at (800) 367-6372.
