Subsequent to the company’s discovery that the left-rear seatback electric latch of its range of vehicles may fail, Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 1,352 model year 2020 E450s, AMG E63Ss, GLC300s, AMG GLC43s, AMG GLC63s, AMG GT53s and AMG GT63s with rear seatbacks that can be electrically unlatched.

The left-rear seatback latch may not be strong enough to withstand certain loads. If cargo were to strike the left-rear seatback, the latch may fail, according to ConsumerAffairs.

It was gathered that the failure of the latch in a crash can increase the risk of injury.

The auto manufacturing firm is notifying vehicle owners and dealers that it would replace the left-rear seatback latch free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin August 4, 2020.

Owners may contact MBUSA customer service through (800) 367-6372, stated the report.
