Affected in Mercedes-Benz S-Class recall are nearly 150 vehicles. Model-years 2011-2012 Mercedes-Benz S-Class luxury sedans (S550, S550 4matic, S63, S600, S65 AMG and S400 Hybrid included) are affected by the recall. All the aforementioned vehicles were built between March 3 and July 30, 2011.
In the affected vehicles, the tire pressure monitoring system indicators may be faulty, as they may illuminate for some time and may fail to do so after the vehicle is restarted. Re-illumination is required to reduce the risk of crashes. The thing is that if all four wheel sensors are simultaneously malfunctioning, then the tire pressure monitoring system will provide an initial warning, but the warning may not repeat, hence failing to remind the driver about the problem. If the tires are not inflated properly, then driving with them may be rather dangerous.
The automaker will start notifying affected owners about Mercedes-Benz S-Class recall this month. The dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and will reprogram the affected pressure monitoring unit free of charge. Owners can contact the automaker at 800-367-6372 for more information.
