  3. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C400 EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS NHTSA Campaign #15V087000

    • Date Announced: FEBRUARY 11, 2015
    • Vehicles Affected: 9,137

    Summary: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2015 C300 and C400 vehicles manufactured from June 18, 2014, through September 5, 2014, that fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

    Actions: Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the horizontal adjustment mechanisms on the headlamps with sealing caps on the affected vehicles. The recall began May 23, 2016. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-800-367-6372. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #15V087000 »
