German carmaker Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for 8 units of the G-Class SUV in Australia to fix an issue with the wiring of the rugged SUV.
The engine wiring harness in the affected SUVs may come into contact with the other components in the engine bay which could cause the harness to wear out.
A worn out harness may cause the engines to cut out while driving, which poses a hazard to the occupants of the vehicle and other road users.
It is not known what variants of the G-Class have been recalled nor the year they were manufactured but no incidents due to the worn out harnesses have been reported as of now.
Mercedes will contact affected owners by mail and will replace the wiring harnesses free of charge.
