Mercedes Vietnam announced it would recall 492 ML and GLE cars sold in Vietnam beginning March 15 to fix inconsistent design features and repair errors in the spare wheel compartment.
The affected SUVs were manufactured and imported between February 2012 and October 2019.
German luxury vehicle company Mercedes recalls ML and GLE SUVs in many countries, including Vietnam, because of concerns that water could collect in the spare tire wheel compartment, leading to a possible fuel pump malfunction and subsequent engine stalls without prior warning.
This increases the risk of accidents and injuries for other road users.
To fix the problems, Mercedes Vietnam dealerships will inspect the vehicles for any damage, install a water drain plug in the spare tire well, and replace the fuel pump if necessary.
The company reported that such repairs should only take about 30 minutes per automobile.
Mercedes GLE is a mid-size luxury SUV, first launched in 1997. Cars sold in Vietnam are imports that compete with rivals like the BMW X5, Lexus RX and Audi Q7.
In Vietnam, GLEs is currently priced at VND4.509-5.679 billion (US$191,000-240,600).
