The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), states the oil leak could either ignite and cause a fire, or leak onto the roadway and cause an accident.
Affected cars were sold between 1 December 2019 and 31 March 2020. Mercedes-Benz Australia is contacting owners to organise inspection and free repair if required.
The brand says there are no known failures on Australian-delivered cars, and the recall is purely precautionary.
