Recall for Mercedes-Benz cars fitted with incorrect software

A total of just 11 Mercedes-Benz models affected by recall…

A possible software issue has been identified in just a small handful of Mercedes-Benz vehicles sold in Australia.

Only 11 vehicles are affected by the recall which is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).

The recall notice says the affected vehicles were repaired or serviced between the 3rd of December and the 5th of December 2016 and may have had incorrect software uploaded.

The upload may affect various control units and affect numerous systems, including vehicle emissions and airbag deployment.

What are the hazards?

If the airbag deployment is affected, there can be increased risk of injury to vehicle occupants during an accident.

Affected Mercedes-Benz owners will be contacted by direct mail and asked to contact their nearest Mercedes-Benz dealership to make an appointment for the software to be upgraded.
