What are the defects?

The volume of oil in the dual clutch transmission may be too high.

What are the hazards?

If the oil level is too high, transmission oil could foam up, which can lead to the vehicle stalling. In extreme driving situations, transmission oil might leak, spilling on to the road or coming in contact with hot engine components and creating a fire risk. This increases the risk of a crash and injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.

Also, the maximum levels of CO2 and exhaust gas emissions may be exceeded. 

What should consumers do?

Consumers are asked to contact their most convenient Mercedes-Benz Retailer for a free of charge inspection and repair if required.
