Mercedes Recalls Vehicles with Faulty Locks [Video]

Hello, and welcome back to the recall blog.

Mercedes-Benz recently issued a recall for eighty seven hundred of its 4Matic and other light SUVs from the 2017 and 2018 model years.

The issue in question is that, in some cases, doors that may appear to be locked actually are not, potentially increasing the risk of injury or other mishaps.

About 1 percent of recalled vehicles are expected to be affected.

The defect comes from a faulty riveting parameter at a supplier, which produced affected vehicles between early January and early August 2017.

Owners are asked to bring their vehicles to a local Mercedes-Benz dealer, where their locks will be tested and replaced if necessary.

Thanks for watching, and be sure to check back soon for more recall news.
