The Mercedes-Benz GLE, GLS, and EQC SUVs have been recalled for faulty vehicle jacks that may cause the vehicle to fall in two separate recall notices.

The first recall notice impacts a total of 4093 Mercedes-Benz GLE and GLS models produced between 2019 and 2022.

“The vehicle jack provided with certain vehicles may be faulty and also may not meet the requirements of the Australian Consumer Product Safety Standard,” said the company in its recall notice.

“If a faulty vehicle jack is used, it could become unstable and the raised vehicle may fall.”
