The catalyst monitoring part in the engine control unit software of the vehicles within the scope of this recall does not meet the specifications, which prevents timely detection of excessive aging catalyst failures. Furthermore, the malfunction indicator lamp (illuminating the fault lamp after two driving cycles) does not illuminate as expected, posing emission hazards. Mercedes-Benz (China) Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. will provide free upgrades of the engine control unit software for the vehicles within the recall scope through authorized dealerships to eliminate emission hazards.

On May 26th, Mercedes-Benz (China) Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. filed a recall plan with the State Administration for Market Regulation, recalling a total of 1161 imported S-Class vehicles produced between April 3, 2020, and February 4, 2021. The reason for the recall is that for some vehicles, due to inadequate sealing of the front bulkhead, water may infiltrate the interior of the vehicle, causing corrosion or short circuit of the Pre-Safe wiring harness in the vehicle. In extreme cases, the seat belt tensioner and seat adjustment may not function properly, increasing the risk of collision injuries for occupants and posing a safety hazard.
