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.

Nissan builds the Mercedes-Benz X-Class in its Navara factory in Spain and the project was designed to cut production costs for both brands.

2018 Mercedes-Benz X-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz has recalled the 2018 X-Class ute over concerns about the tyre pressure monitoring software. According to the company, a software error (code RY2) in the tyre pressure monitoring system of some X-Class vehicles might prevent it from displaying a low tyre pressure warning in the instrument cluster. Driving with tyre pressures below the recommended minimum can cause uneven tyre wear, and steering/braking behaviour is negatively impacted, increasing the risk of an accident.
