2022 Mercedes-Benz EQS, Maybach S580
Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC
Number of vehicles affected: 8,530
Report Date: July 11, 2022
Issue: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2022 AMG EQS53, EQS580, EQS450, 2021 S500, S580, and Maybach S580 vehicles. The rearview camera may not display the rearview image due to a software error in the MBUX multimedia system. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, “Rear Visibility.” An inoperative rearview camera display reduces the driver’s rear view, increasing the risk of a crash.
Solution: Dealers will update the MBUX multimedia system software, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed September 9, 2022.
Contact: Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
