A million Mercedes vehicles recalled in US over tech glitch

  • The glitch may result in a failure to send the correct Mercedes vehicle location for the emergency call system in the event of a crash.

Mercedes-Benz USA has recalled over 1 million vehicles for a failure in the eCall system, which has resulted in emergency responders being dispatched to wrong locations, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in a release.

The software design of the communication module may result in a failure to send the correct vehicle location for the emergency call system in the event of a crash and increase the risk of injury following a crash, says NHTSA.
