2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Hybrid Recalled for Stalling Risk


WASHINGTON Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling four 2015 Mercedes-Benz S550 Hybrid sedans because of a stalling risk, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"After driving in electric mode, the fuel pump output may be insufficient to restart the gasoline engine and the vehicle will stall," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "A vehicle stall increases the risk of a crash."

The recall is based on field reports, Mercedes-Benz told federal safety regulators.

No injuries or damages are linked to the recall, the automaker said.

Mercedes-Benz dealers will update the fuel-system control unit software. The recall is expected to begin in November. Owners can contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles will be contacted soon by Mercedes-Benz with further instructions on getting their car repaired.
