What are the defects?

Some Mercedes-Benz vehicles have a feature that lifts the bonnet of the car if a collision with a pedestrian is detected.

In some vehicles with the defect, the pedestrian may not be detected and the mechanism may not work as intended.

What are the hazards?

If the mechanism does not work as intended, there may be increased risk of injury of the pedestrian.

What should consumers do?

Consumers should contact their nearest Mercedes-Benz passenger car retailer to arrange an inspection and repair of the vehicle free of charge.
