Mercedes-Benz has recalled four cars across the GLC220 and E300 model lines, over concerns about the crankshaft.

According to the company, the affected cars could be fitted with a crankshaft bearing surface damage caused by a manufacturing error.

The crankshaft could fail, causing 'sudden engine damage' that stops the car, increasing the risk of injury or accident to occupants and other road users.

A total of four cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Mercedes-Benz Australia will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free repair. The original recall notice is attached here.
