Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (Mercedes) is recalling certain model year
2008-2011 C300, C300 4Matic, C350, and C63 AMG vehicles manufactured
January 26, 2007, through July 13, 2011. In the affected vehicles, a
poor electrical ground connection may result in the dimming or failure
of the tail lights.
Dimming or failure of the tail lights reduces the ability to warn
other motorists of the driver's intentions of stopping or turning,
increasing the risk of a crash.
Mercedes will notify owners, and dealers will replace the bulb holders
if not previously updated and replace any corroded connectors, free of
charge. Parts are not currently available. Owners will be sent an
interim notification in June 2014. A second letter will be mailed when
parts are available, currently expected to be in August or September
2014. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-800-367-6372.
