Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2016 AMG GT S vehicles manufactured June 1, 2015 to July 24, 2015. In affected vehicles, the adhesive bond between the carbon-fiber driveshaft and the rear flange may fail, and as a result, there may be a loss of torque to the rear wheels.
If the adhesive bond fails and results in a loss of torque to the rear wheels, the vehicle operator may be unable to move the vehicle, or may experience deceleration if the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the carbon-fiber driveshaft, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2016. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372. MBUSA's number for this recall is 2016050008.
