Multiple Mercedes-Benz models recalled

Mercedes-Benz is recalling 8382 vehicles across six of its model lines due to a coolant leak that may result in vehicle fire.


Mercedes-Benz is recalling 8382 examples of its C-Class, E-Class, G-Class, S-Class, GLE and GLS models due to a leak that may develop between the coolant pump and vacuum circuit.

This recall affects C-Class, E-Class, G-Class, S-Class, GLE and GLS models sold from 2017 to 2021 with OM654 and OM656 diesel engines.

These local affected units are part of a global recall reported by CNBC early last week.

“A leak may develop between the coolant pump and the vacuum circuit. There is a possibility that the coolant may enter the vacuum circuit,” the company says in its recall notice.

“If the coolant enters the vacuum circuit and comes in contact with certain components it will result in an increase in temperature of these components and may result in a vehicle fire.”

If you own an affected vehicle, Mercedes-Benz will be in contact you to book in a free fix at your most convenient Mercedes-Benz dealer for a free fix.

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