Our Fresno metro area lemon law attorney at Shainfeld Law knows consumers regard Mercedes-Benz vehicles as highly reliable due to the brand’s long-standing reputation for engineering excellence, advanced technology, and rigorous quality control.

Additionally, comprehensive warranty programs and a strong network of service centers provide owners with confidence and peace of mind, reinforcing Mercedes-Benz’s reputation as a maker of reliable, trustworthy automobiles.

Unfortunately, some California consumers must depend on their vehicle warranties more often for specific models, including the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 and GLS 450 models currently exhibiting defects in the transmission control unit software.

Here is what any of the over four million San Joaquin Valley Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 and GLS 450 model owners need to know about their rights to file a California Lemon Law claim.

Mercedes-Benz GLE 450

What Defects are the Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 and GLS 450 Models Exhibiting?

According to the latest information, over 105,000 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450 and GLS 450 model units potentially have a transmission software defect. The software may cause the engine to stall if certain conditions are met, such as when the transmission downshifts from 7th to 6th gear during a slight braking maneuver. This transmission defect can cause the vehicle to lose propulsion, thereby increasing the crash risk.

Common signs of the defect include:

  • Dashboard Warning Lights.
  • Difficulty Restarting.
  • Jerkiness
  • Loss of Power.
  • Sputtering or Knocking Noises.

This Mercedes-Benz transmission software defect affects explicitly the following models:

  • 2020-2023 Mercedes-Benz GLE 450
  • 2020-2023 Mercedes-Benz GLS 450

If you own one of the models, and your transmission software cannot be fixed after a reasonable number of attempts, you may be eligible to file a California lemon law claim. We can help.
