Over 100 vehicles could have faulty active bonnets – not great if you hit a pedestrians.
Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for the E-Class sold between 2017 and 2018 over concerns the active bonnet may not operate as intended.
According to the German marque, some vehicles may have a defective system that doesn't detect pedestrians and therefore doesn't activate the safety feature in the event of a collision.
If the condition occurs, Mercedes-Benz says there could be an increased risk of injury to the pedestrian.
Customers are advised to contact their local dealer to arrange the inspection and repair of their vehicle.
