Mercedes-Benz has announced the recall of 137,000 M-Class SUVs due to an issue where the cruise control doesn’t immediately disengage when drivers tap the brake pedal. As it’s widely known, cruise control systems are supposed to immediately shut off the moment the driver uses either the brake.

Mercedes-Benz said that under some circumstances, particularly if the driver pumps the brakes, the cruise control system can require an good amount of brake force before it will shut off.

Drivers can shut the cruise control off without any issue by using the steering column-mounted controls.

The recall involves 2,000 136,751 2002-2004 M-Class and M-Class AMG SUVs. Owners can call Mercedes-Benz customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
