Mercedes-Benz is recalling 324 examples of its EQC electric mid-sized SUV due to a faulty wiring harness for the steering control unit.
This recall only affects certain EQC400 4Matic models sold from 2019 to 2021.
“Due to a manufacturing defect the wiring harness of the steering control unit may be damaged,” the company says in its recall notice.
“The damage can allow water or moisture into the wiring harness, which can cause a short circuit resulting in a loss of electric power steering.
“This can increase the risk of an accident, causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users and bystanders.”
