2018-2019 Mercedes-AMG G63 recalled due to child-lock symbol

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for 361 examples of its AMG G63 wagon with Model Years from 2018 to 2019 (MY18-MY19) due to an incorrect child safety lock symbol. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the incorrectly embossed symbol "may result in a misinterpretation of the locking status of the child safety lock".

AMG GT worth $300k stripped at airport valet car park

A Mercedes-AMG GT coupe has been stripped of its panels after being left with an airport valet car park service. Jay Tranter and his girlfriend returned to the UK from a Portugal holiday to discover the $300,000 supercar was all but destroyed by thieves. The British couple had left the vehicle with a valet service at Birmingham airport for five days, at a cost of £52.94 (AU$94.94). Representatives from the valet service met the couple at the airport at 4am on 8 July 2020.
