Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled the 2011-2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class over concerns the ABS hydraulic unit may be faulty.

According to the company, driving over corrugated roadways could make the brake lines in the ABS hydraulic unit crack, creating a brake fluid leak and impeding the car's stopping distance.

If the ABS braking power is impacted, longer stopping distances increase the risk of an accident or injury.

A total of 451 cars are included in the recall – a VIN list is attached here.

Mercedes-Benz will contact the affected owners and will advise them to organise a free fix with their nearest dealer.
