  • Mercedes-Benz recalls nearly 300,000 SUVs, issues ‘do not drive’ order


U.S. National Highway Traffic & Safety Administration

This week, Mercedes-Benz issued a "do not drive" order for a serious brake problem on SUVs made between 2006-2012. Vehicles will be towed to the nearest dealership and the work will be done for free.

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued recalls for May 5 through 12, including a Mercedes-Benz recall involving 292,287 units and a Hyundai recall involving 215,171 units.

Mercedes went so far as to issue a “do not drive” order for SUVs made between 2006 and 2012, urging owners to have their vehicles towed to the nearest dealership due to a problem with the potential accumulation of moisture and corrosion in the brake booster housing unit, which can impede brake performance and cause possible failure.
