Mercedes-Benz has recalled examples of its rugged G-Class model this week, due to a potential problem with the engine wiring harness.
The carmaker says the wiring harness may be allowed to contact various engine parts, which could result in damage to the harness.
Should this occur, the harness may become damaged to the point where the engine stalls. A stalled engine while driving could pose a hazard to the vehicle occupants or other road users.
Just eight vehicles are on the recall list for Australia, and there have been no reported incidents locally.
Other Mercedes recalls in Australia over the last few weeks include the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van, recalled for a potential problem with the side windows, along with the C-Class midsizer which was recalled for a loose front spoiler lip.
Mercedes-Benz will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer or phone Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific 03 9566 9266.
