Mercedes-Benz is recalling approximately 400 model-year 2018 Mercedes-AMG S63 4Matic and S65 luxury performance sedans and coupes due to an issue with the camera software. The software calibration for the active lane-keeping assist function may be incorrect which could cause the system to not intervene in the event of an unintended lane departure while traveling faster than 65 mph, increasing the risk of a crash.
Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners on Oct. 5. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will update the multipurpose camera software.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
