The Problem: The electronic stability program while Distronic Plus is engaged may malfunction, causing the Used Engine to not reduce power regardless of the vehicle's speed, driving situation or brake application. Increased braking effort or shifting to Neutral would be needed to stop the vehicle, lengthening the distance needed to stop it and increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will reprogram the ESP control unit software for free.
What Owners Should Do: Mercedes -Benz will begin notifying owners in December. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372, the National Highway Traffic Safety Ad Mini stration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
