Mercedes-Benz India recalls a batch of G63 and E63 AMG models.
Mercedes-Benz India has recalled 12 units of the G63 and 14 units of the E63 AMG models in the country. It is a part of a global recall under which more than 2400 units are affected.
The German luxury carmaker is recalling the G63 units manufactured between 9th July, 2018 and 2nd October, 2018. Reason behind the recall is the wiring harness of the front doors may have been unfavourably installed.
Due to this, affected cables might malfunction and restrain system might trigger in a delayed manner if there is a side impact. This fault might impact the safety of the passengers.
Mercedes-AMG E63 manufactured between 12th June, 2018 and 21st September, 2018 have been recalled. The affected units have elastomer material of oil feed line to the exhaust gas turbocharger that might not correspond to the specification by Mercedes.
This may lead to isolated leakage of oil feed line due to heat. The leaked oil might further come into contact with hot component parts and trigger a fire hazard.
The owners will be individually contacted for the recall in India to replace the parts. Since there is a lockdown in most of the states currently due to COVID-19, the service centre might carry out the procedure once the operations come back to normal.
