2017-19 Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled the 2017-19 E-Class All-Terrain, over concerns the rear spoiler mightn't have been correctly attached. According to the company the screws for the tailgate spoiler might not have been tightened to specification. At high speeds, that means the spoiler could detach from the car, putting other road users at risk of injury. A total of 341 cars are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

2011-18 Mercedes-Benz G-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled the 2011-2018 Mercedes-Benz G-Class over concerns the ABS hydraulic unit may be faulty. According to the company, driving over corrugated roadways could make the brake lines in the ABS hydraulic unit crack, creating a brake fluid leak and impeding the car's stopping distance. If the ABS braking power is impacted, longer stopping distances increase the risk of an accident or injury.
