2023 EQS Sedan Reliability

In its first model year on sale (2022), the Mercedes EQS Sedan suffered from eight recalls (correct at the time of writing). These ranged from a blank rearview camera display to faulty hands-off detection for the Distronic adaptive cruise control. Disabled rear lighting, a faulty overhead control panel, infotainment issues, and a fire risk on some models due to poor electrical connections were also some of the problems encountered. However, at present, the 2023 model is recall-free. Mercedes covers the EQS Sedan with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty, including drivetrain and corrosion protection. A two-year/20,000-mile maintenance plan is also included, and the battery is covered for eight years/100,000 miles.
