Mercedes-Benz issues recall for X-Class utes due to steering issue

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall of 6116 examples of its X-Class ute, with Model Years from 2018 to 2019 (MY18-MY19), due to a possible hydraulic fluid leak from the steering system. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says a connection on the hydraulic line could leak, which may result in a failure of the power steering system.

The Chinese-market SUV cements the styling themes for JMC-Ford – the Blue Oval's joint venture in the country – which looks to be an evolution of the design language seen on other models from the company. The pictures were posted on the social media website Weibo, along with what appears to be internal Ford documents outlining the model's specifications.
