Mercedes-Benz GLE (2018 – 2019)

Published on 22 February 2020

Due to insufficient padding, passengers may not be made aware that the headrest on the third row of seats is not in the correct position. Furthermore, the catch groove on the headrest rod might be missing.

As a result, the protective function of the headrest cannot be guaranteed, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

The Mercedes-Benz GLE models affected by this recall were equipped with a third row of seats and manufactured between 3 July 2018 and 19 June 2019.
