More Than 252,000 Mercedes C300, C300 4Matic, C350 and C63 AMG Vehicles Recalled
Mercedes-Benz is recalling approximately 252,867 model year 2008-2011 C300, C300 4Matic, C350 and C63 AMG vehicles manufactured from January 26, 2007 through July 13, 2011.
In the affected vehicles, a poor electrical ground connection may result in the dimming or failure of the tail lights.
Dimming or failure of the tail lights reduces the ability to warn other motorists of the driver's intentions of stopping or turning, increasing the risk of a crash.
Mercedes will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will replace the bulb holders if not previously updated and replace any corroded connectors, free of charge.
The parts required to remedy this recall are not currently available. Owners will be sent an interim notification from Mercedes in June 2014. A second letter will be mailed when parts are available, currently expected to be in August or September 2014.
