Mercedes-Benz Issues Recall Due To Problem With Emergency Call System

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling nearly 1.3 million vehicles because of a glitch in the emergency call system.

The company says its eCall system is supposed to send out a vehicle's location to emergency crews if there's a crash.

However, a glitch could send first responders to the wrong location.

The recall includes more than a dozen models made between 2016 and 2021.
