NHTSA Campaign ID: 16V759000
Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS
Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.
Manufacture Dates: 10/14/2015 - 11/23/2015

The low beam headlights on the affected vehicles may not be properly adjusted. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Assoc. Equipment."
Consequence:
If the low-beam headlights are out of adjustment, the driver's visibility may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.
Action to take:

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 201, "Occupant Protection in Interior Impact."
Consequence:
In the event of a crash, if objects are not secured within the center console, they may strike the vehicle occupants, increasing their risk of injury.
