Approximately 13,800 model-year 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE350, GLE450, GLS450, and GLS580 SUVs are being recalled because the rear-door window trim may detach, becoming a road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash.

Mercedes-Benz began notifying owners on Dec. 3.  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 inspect and fasten the rear-door window trim, as necessary.

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.
