Mercedes-AMG recalls C63, G Wagon, and GT S for emissions fault

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall of 956 AMG vehicles with Model Years from 2015 to 2018 (MY15-MY18). The problem occurs in Mercedes-AMG C63, G Wagon, and GT S models. The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the computer may not function as intended if left sitting for a period of time, resulting in emissions which do not meet regulations.
