2018-2019 Mercedes Benz X-Class recalled in Australia
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The 2018-2019 X-Class crossover has been withdrawn by Mercedes-Benz Australia in 5889 units.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.
The company has stated that if the seal breaks then there is a possibility of window breakage.
This can cause the small pieces of glass getting scattered, increasing the accident risk.
In Australia, nearly each type that was delivered during its approximately two-year existence has been withdrawn.
The complaint filed with the DOI stated the following...
"Due to a manufacturing defect, the rear window may have pressure on it as a seal has shrunk causing the window to shatter"
Since its cars are made in Thailand and the Mercedes-Benz X-Class was created in Madrid, the Nissan Navara, that functioned as the Mercedes-Benz X-Class' foundation is unaffected.
Earlier the same model had been recalled due to an oil leak issue.
