Benz says the stalls are happening just as the vehicle comes to a stop, which could lead the driver to think it’s part of the normal operation of the car’s automatic start/stop system. In fact, however, the car will not re-start automatically after the driver releases the brake pedal, and would need to be started manually.
Transport Canada is concerned that in certain traffic conditions, the driver’s reaction could increase the risk of a crash. Mercedes-Benz is instructing its dealers to update the software in the vehicle’s engine control unit (ECU).
