During the past week, General Motors (GM), Fiat Chrysler Automobiles US (FCA US), Mercedes-Benz USA, Nissan North America, and Porsche Cars North America issued recalls of a total of more than 470,000 light vehicles, from the 2011 through 2017 model years. The largest recall comes from FCA US, and involves 412,855 vehicles of the Chrysler, Jeep, and Ram brands from the 2014 and 2015 model years. Details for each safety recall are on the pages that follow, in alphabetical order by car brand.

2015 Mercedes-Benz C300, C400

Number of vehicles affected: 9,137
Date of manufacture: June 18, 2014 to September 5, 2014
Issue: The vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108: Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment. The affected vehicles were assembled with horizontal adjustment mechanisms that allow the owner to change the horizontal adjustment used during the manufacturing process, instead of the proper sealing caps. If the original horizontal adjustment is used to alter the low-beam aim, the misaimed headlamp may not properly illuminate the road, or may cause increased glare to oncoming drivers, which increases the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the horizontal adjustment mechanisms on the headlamps with sealing caps on the affected vehicles.
The recall began May 23, 2016. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
NHTSA recall number: 15V087000
