Mercedes-Benz is warning drivers of more than 292,000 vehicles that they should not drive them due to potential brake failure issues and, as a result, has issued a recall.

The recall affects certain 2006 to 2012 ML, GL, and R Class SUVs that may have brake booster corrosion that could impair braking.

The brake failure may occur in the impacted vehicles due to moisture that has accumulated and caused corrosion in the brake booster housing unit, which may reduce braking performance or cause brake failure entirely.

To repair the issue, Mercedes-Benz is first advising affected SUV owners not to drive their vehicles until they have had the recall remedy performed. The repairs will include removing the rubber sleeve, inspecting the brake booster, and if necessary, replacing the brake booster at no charge to the vehicle owner.

Affected Mercedes-Benz owners can expect to receive a recall notice beginning May 27.

Questions about the recall can be directed to MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

The automaker has not received any reports of crashes or injuries related to the recall issue.
