If you own a Mercedes-Benz, be aware of a possible recall. On Monday, two small actions were issued.

Notably, the largest of these callbacks concerns just 1,700 vehicles cap250 2020 model year SUVs What’s the problem? An incorrect voltage converter may be installed in the accessory outlet on the second row. This can cause the gate to receive too much voltage, creating a fire hazard. If your GLB250 is affected by this recall, the automaker will notify you by September 3. To correct the problem, dealers will inspect the voltage converter and replace it free of charge if necessary. For reference, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration campaign number for this promotion is 21V526000.

The second recall issued by Mercedes-Benz this week concerns a wide range of vehicles – as many as 15 different copies from the 2020 and 2021 model years. Fortunately, only 542 individual cars and SUVs are affected. If you own a AMG CLS53, AMG E53, AMG G63, AMG GLC63, AMG GT43, AMG GT53, CLS450, E350, E450, G550, GLC300, S450 or S560, expect a recall in the mail around Sept. 10.

The problem with these vehicles is the side crash sensor connectors, which may have come loose. If these instruments are not fitted correctly, they may not function properly in a crash, causing the seat belts and airbags to malfunction as designed, significantly increasing the risk of injury or death. If your Mercedes-Benz is affected by this action, dealers will inspect and replace the side impact sensors free of charge. The NHTSA campaign number for this recall is 21V527000.
