Mercedes-Benz Australia is recalling 25 examples of its 2020-2021 E-Class due to an issue with a wiring harness.
“Due to a manufacturing defect, the vehicle power electronics system wiring harness may come in contact and chafe against the underbody paneling,” the company says in its recall notice.
“As a result, the wiring harness could become damaged causing a loss of power.
“A loss of power whilst driving could increase the risk of an accident causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.”
This is separate to another E-Class recall notice, issued this week, which involved an issue with the safe exit warning system in certain models produced in 2022.
