(KMOV)—Mercedes-Benz is recalling nearly 140,000 M-Class SUVs, model years 2000 to 2004, to fix a problem with the cruise-control system.
 
Mercedes filed the recall with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and said the cruise-control may not disengage when the driver steps back on the brake pedal, which could lead to a crash.
 
Mercedes adds that the system can still be shut off by using the cruise-control stalk or by pumping the brake pedal.
 
Customer will be notified about the recall sometime in late summer 2011.
