Mercedes-Benz Australia is recalling 25 examples of its AMG GT sports car due to a manufacturing issue that may cause wiring harnesses for the front wheel sensors to become damaged.

This recall affects AMG GT Black Series models produced in 2019. For context, only 28 of these track-optimised GT models were imported locally in 2021.

“Due to a manufacturing issue, the wiring harnesses of the front wheel speed sensors may be damaged and the Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) system may be deactivated,” said the company in its recall notice.

“This could result in a loss of vehicle control. Warning lights will illuminate in the instrument cluster indicating to the driver that the VDC is not activated.”

If you own an affected vehicle you’ll need to contact your nearest authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer to schedule in a free fix. You can also book a service at a Mercedes-Benz dealer online here.

If you have any further questions you can contact the Mercedes-Benz customer assistance centre on 1300 300 896.
