2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 and C400 Recalled for Headlight Problem

WASHINGTON — Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling 9,137 2015 Mercedes-Benz C300 and C400 sedans to fix a headlight problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"The affected vehicles were assembled with horizontal-adjustment mechanisms that allow the owner to change the horizontal adjustment used during the manufacturing process, instead of the proper sealing caps," said the NHTSA in its recall summary.

"If the original horizontal adjustment is used to alter the low-beam aim, the mis-aimed headlights may not properly illuminate the road or cause increased glare to oncoming drivers, which increases the risk of a crash."

A Mercedes-Benz spokeswoman did not respond immediately to a query from Edmunds asking if there are any injuries or accidents linked to the recall.

The affected cars were built from June 18, 2014, through September 5, 2014.

Mercedes-Benz dealers will replace the horizontal-adjustment mechanisms on the headlights with sealing caps. The recall has begun. Owners can contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

Edmunds says: It's time to make a service appointment with your Mercedes-Benz dealer if you own one of these cars.
