Feb. 16, 2021—Mercedes is recalling more than one million vehicles due to a technical glitch that may send an incorrect location of the vehicle to emergency responders after a crash. 

The glitch is due to a failure in the automaker's eCell software, reports The Verge. The recall includes vehicles sold from model years 2016 to 2021. 

To fix the affected systems, Mercedes will issue an over-the-air update, free of charge, beginning April 6.
