Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling 2007-2009 E350 4MATIC wagons warns the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. About 3,600 of the E350 wagons have a load leveling rear suspension system that may fail, reducing a driver's control and increase the risk of a crash, says NHTSA.

In August, the company is expected to begin notifying owners of 2007-2009 Mercedes-Benz E350 cars affected by this recall. They will be instructed to bring in their E350s to local dealerships where mechanics will inspect and replace the level control connecting rod for free.

For more information, consumers can call Mercedes-Benz toll-free customer support at: 800-367-6372.
