Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain 2017 E300 and E300 4Matic vehicles due to a defective steering column-mounted shift lever module. If the internal circuit board is damaged, moving the shift lever will not select a transmission gear.

If the vehicle does not move forward or backward as selected by the driver with the shift lever, there is an increased risk of a crash.

Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the steering column-mounted shift lever module, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in March 2017.

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