Mercedes-Benz is recalling more than 284,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada because of a poor electrical ground connection that may result in the dimming or failure of tail lights.

The recall impacts C300, C300 4Matic, C350, and C63 AMG vehicles from the 2008 through 2011 model years.

Mercedes is expected to notify owners of the defect. Dealers will replace the bulb holders and any corroded connectors for free. Parts are expected to be available in August or September.

Owners may contact Mercedes at (800) 367-6372.
