Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling certain model year 2014 S63 AMG sedans and 2015-2016 S63 AMG 4Matic sedans and coupes manufactured May 14, 2013, to September 18, 2015. In the affected vehicles, due to a software error within the engine control unit, the vehicle may stall when coasting to a stop, such as at a traffic light.

Mercedes-Benz's number for this recall is: 2015100003
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V652000
Component: Electrical system, fuel system
Potential Number of Units Affected: 2,956

The vehicle stall may be interpreted by the driver to be a planned shut-down as part of the ECO-Start-function. However, the engine will not restart automatically after releasing the brake pedal, immobilizing the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.

Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will update the engine control unit software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on December 8, 2015. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty: 1-800-424-9153); or go to Safercar.
