Mercedes Australia recalls 155 G-Wagon’s over a serious safety flaw

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled 155 of the 463 G-Wagons sold in the country between 2018 and 2019 due to a defect which could cause the airbags not to deploy in a crash.

The recall was issued through the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and states that a wiring issue in the doors could cause a wiring harness to decay rapidly through the opening and closing of the doors. This issue could mean that the airbags could be delayed or not deploy at all in the event of a crash.

It could also cause less fatal issues like the seat effected in the crash when the Emergency Services are automatically called by the car. This issue could still cause fatality as the emergency responders could spend time on the wrong side of the car.

The effected models were sold between 1 August 2018 and 31 March 2019 and you can check if your is effected by contacting your nearest dealership.
