Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling 2,215 model year 2016-2017 GLE 300d 4MATIC, GLE 350, GLE 350 4MATIC, and GLE 400 4MATIC vehicles.

The low beam headlights on the affected vehicles may not be properly adjusted. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Assoc. Equipment."

If the low-beam headlights are out of adjustment, the driver's visibility may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.

The vehicles impacted by this recall were all manufactured between October 14, 2015 and November 23, 2015.

Mercedes-Benz USA will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will inspect and correct the headlight adjustment, as necessary, free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin sometime during November 2016. Owners with additional questions can contact Mercedes-Benz USA customer service at (800-367-6372).
