  2. 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK300 ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:WIRING NHTSA Campaign #16V211000

    • Date Announced: APRIL 13, 2016
    • Vehicles Affected: 223

    Summary: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2016 SLK300 vehicles manufactured June 2, 2015 to July 14, 2015 and equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The backup power supply for the ignition switch in the affected vehicles may not have been properly connected.

    Actions: MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will correct the ignition switch wiring and perform a software update, free of charge. The recall began on May 9, 2016.
