2018-2019 Mercedes Benz X-Class recalled in Australia

The 2018-2019 X-Class crossover has been withdrawn by Mercedes-Benz Australia in 5889 units.

The manufacturer has identified a possible issue with the seal surrounding the back window.

Earlier the same model had been recalled due to an oil leak issue.
