Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall of 101 examples of its A-Class, B-Class, and CLA variants with Model Years from 2019 to 2020 (MY19-MY20) due to the potential for an oil leak to occur.

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.
