German high-end carmaker Mercedes is recalling more than 140,000 vehicles in the U.S. due to problems with the fuel pump.

According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), up to 143,551 cars made between 2021 and 2023 are affected, the regulator announced in Washington on Friday.

The vehicles include models of the C-, E- and S-Class as well as the SUV types GLC, GLE and GLS. G-Class SUVs are also listed.

Dealers would replace the fuel pump free of charge, the NHTSA said. A malfunction of the pump could increase the risk of an accident, according to the regulator.
