A RECALL has been issued for the MY2011-18 Mercedes-Benz G-Class, with a total of 451 vehicles affected.
The reason for the recall is due to a brake line fault in the ABS hydraulic unit – “Strong vibrations, such as driving on corrugated roadway, could cause the brake lines in the ABS hydraulic unit to crack, resulting in brake fluid leaking and affecting the vehicle's stopping distance,” the ACCC report says.
The units affected were sold nationally between February 1, 2011, and October 31, 2018. For a complete list of affected vehicles see: www.productsafety.gov.au
Owners of affected vehicles are entitled to free reparation and are advised to contact their nearest Mercedes-Benz dealer: www.dealerlocator.mercedes-benz.com.au/
