Fault could leave Mercedes-Benz A-Class and B-Class vehicles stranded.
A potential fault has been identified in drive shafts fitted to Mercedes-Benz A-Class and B-Class vehicles.
Affecting just less than a total of 1,800 vehicles, the suspect drive shaft was fitted to A-Class and B-Class vehicles sold in Australia between the 1st of September 2012 and the 30th June 2013.
The Mercedes-Benz A-Class and B-Class drive shaft recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.
The ACCC’s recall notice saying that under extreme driving conditions the drive shaft retaining rings may break.
This may cause a loss of drive resulting in a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
Mercedes-Benz Australia will send a letter to owners of affected vehicles.
