2011-18 Mercedes-Benz G-Class recalled

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.
