Approximately 150 model-year 2020 Mercedes-AMG GT coupes are being recalled because the emergency call system communication module may be missing the wiring harness ground line. This could cause the system to relay an inaccurate vehicle location and restrict the ability to communicate verbally with the call center, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an emergency.
Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners on June 20. 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 remedy the issue, dealers will repair the wiring harness of the communication module.
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.
