Mercedes-Benz is recalling three of its smallest models – the A-Class, CLA and GLB – as an issue with their fuel feed hose could ignite a fire.
“Due to a manufacturing defect, the fuel feed hose may become chafed and could cause a fuel leak in the engine compartment,” the company says in its recall notice.
“This may result in a vehicle fire.
“A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders.”
