2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE250d recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled GLE250d models built in May, June and July 2017, over concerns about the transmission oil lines. According to the company, the car could suffer a drop in power because of oil loss within the transmission. There's a risk of fire if oil leaks onto hot exhaust components, while leaks onto the road create a greater risk of accident for other road users.
