The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the vehicle's stability control system may not function as intended, due to incorrect calibrations.
The notice states: "The software of the Electronic Stability Program (ESP) control unit may be incorrectly programmed for the type of brake in the vehicle".
Affected cars were sold between 1 August 2018 and 16 August 2020. Mercedes-Benz Australia is contacting owners to organise inspection and repair of the defect.
The company has been contacted and this story will be updated with its response.
