Mercedes-Benz recalls new electric vehicles EQC

Due to a defective bolt, the automaker is forced to withdraw about 1.7 thousand cars.

Daimler announced the recall of the new Mercedes-Benz EQC electric car due to a potentially defective differential bolt.

    “Daimler AG experts determined that on some EQC vehicles, the bolt in the front differential gear axis does not meet the strength requirements. Thus, it is possible that the bolt will break sooner or later, ”the company said.

A malfunction may interrupt the transmission of torque to the front axle, which will cause the vehicle to stop. In addition, if parts of a broken bolt get stuck in the differential, this may affect the ability to drive the vehicle, increasing the risk of collision.

The German industrial publication kfz betrieb, which initially reported the details of the recall, noted that the service promotion affects 1,700 cars. Daimler declined to comment on the number of vehicles in which the defective part may be installed.
