Mercedes-Benz has recalled its 2019-20 GLE as one of the rear seat occupants mightn’t be able to buckle up.

“The rear middle seat belt buckle could be pushed under the seat cushion,” the company says in its recall notice.

“If the passenger was not able to retrieve the buckle, it would not be possible to fasten the affected seat belt. If a passenger does not fasten the seatbelt, the risk of injury or death in a crash increases for that passenger and other vehicle occupants.”

  • A total of 1564 vehicles are affected.
  • Affected vehicles were available for sale from 1 July 2019 to 23 November 2020.
  • The VIN list is attached here.
  • The original recall notice is attached here.

If you own an affected GLE, contact your Mercedes-Benz dealer to organise a free inspection and repair.
