Mercedes-Benz Vito recalled over brake issue

Brake fluid reservoir may not be properly secured

The current series of the Mercedes-Benz Vito is being recalled after concerns were raised about the installation of the brake fluid reservoir.

Affecting 2134 Vito vans sold in Australia, the recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

The ACCC recall notice advising that the brake fluid reservoir may not have been properly secured during production.

If the reservoir moves it could result in a loss of brake fluid which may lead to a deterioration of braking efficiency, posing a potential accident hazard.

The Mercedes-Benz Vito vans that are being recalled were sold between the 1st of March 2015 and the 1st of May 2016.

A letter will be sent to owners of affected Vito vans by Mercedes-Benz Australia.
