Mercedes-Benz Australia is recalling 145 examples of the E-Class and CLS due to an issue with one of their warning systems.
“Due to a software issue, the visual and acoustic warning system may not alert the driver if other vehicles and/or traffic are approaching when exiting the vehicle,” the company says in its recall notice.
