According to the Federal Motor Transport Authority, Mercedes-Benz has recalled a little more than 23,500 S-Class sedans worldwide. It’s about cars built in 2020 and 2021. In Germany, around 1000 vehicles are probably affected. Software that does not meet the specifications could therefore affect the electronic stability program (ESP) and the anti-lock braking system (ABS), the authority said in the description.

The carmaker confirmed the recall on Thursday upon request. As a precautionary measure, the software of the ESP control unit in the affected vehicles will be updated, a spokesman said. The planned visit to the workshop for the update will take about half an hour.
