Η Mercedes-Benz ανακοίνωσε την ανάκληση 33.180 C-Class και CLS στις Η.Π.Α για προβλήματα που εντοπίζονται στο ρεζερβουάρ καυσίμου και στα πίσω φωτιστικά σώματα. Η μεγαλύτερη ανάκληση αφορά 30.141 MY2015 CLS400, MY2015 CLS400 4Matic, MY2012-2015 CLS550, MY2012-2015CLS550 4Matic, MY2012-2014 CLS63 AMG και 2014-2015 CLS63P AMG, στα οποία τα πίσω φωτιστικά σώματα δεν φωτίζουν επαρκώς για να καλύψουν τα πρότυπα ασφαλείας των Η.Π.Α. Το πρόβλημα θα λυθεί με ενημέρωση του λογισμικού του αυτοκινήτου.

Η δεύτερη ανάκληση αφορά 3.039 C300 4MATIC ΜΥ2015 και ΜΥ2015 C400 4Matic στα οποία ενδεχομένως να υπάρχουν δύο προβλήματα στη μονάδα παροχής καυσίμου του ρεζερβουάρ. Στο πρώτο πρόβλημα, η τάπα ασφάλισης μπορείς να χαλαρώσει, προκαλώντας διαρροή καυσίμου, ενώ στο δεύτερο, τα ηλεκτρικά καλώδια της μονάδας παροχής καυσίμου, μπορεί να μην έχουν τοποθετηθεί σωστά προκαλώντας πρόβλημα στην αντλία καυσίμου, που υπάρχει περίπτωση να σταματήσει να λειτουργεί.
