autos.id – Recently, the German brand Mercedes-Benz is rumored to be planning a recall on 2 of its SUV products, the GLE and the GLS-Class. Mercedes-Benz 2 Big SUVs had to be recalled due to problems with the adjoining window trim not meeting standard production specifications.
The units affected by the recall on the Mercedes-Benz GLE and GLS-Class are the majority of units produced in the United States and it is not yet known whether assemblies in other countries have also suffered the same thing..
Details of the recall problem that occurred
As reported by Carscoops on Thursday (9/22/2022), the US National Highway Safety Agency or NHTSA said the problem with the door window trim not being installed correctly presented a fairly fatal risk. Because when the car is running, this rear window trim can peel off and, of course, endanger not only the car owner, but also the people around him.
So Mercedes-Benz stated that the risk of an accident causing fatal injuries is also very possible. “What happened is certainly very concerning, so whether we like it or not we were forced to make this recall because the problematic rear door trim is one of the important parts of the car,” said Mercedes-Benz.
For the units affected by this recall, there are approximately 161,000 units of the total GLE Class and GLS affected by this recall. For the units affected by the recall, they were manufactured between May 20, 2019 and April 7, 2022, most of which were U.S.-made units. So far, there have been no similar reports of GLE and GLS class units being sold and manufactured in Indonesia.
Mercedes-Benz itself has begun providing notification letters to consumers whose cars are affected by this recall until November 11. Later, Mercedes-Benz and the dealer will describe the rear door window trim that this time is the cause of the recall problem. Mercy itself guarantees that there will be no additional costs for this withdrawal process.
