Mercedes recalls nearly 1,000 sports cars

September 22, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The problems lie in the electronic engine control unit and affect cars that were released in 2015-2018.

Mercedes-Benz has announced the recall of 956 vehicles in Australia. It is already known that diagnostics and repairs will be required for the sports models Mercedes-AMG GT, GT S and C63, which rolled off the assembly line between 2015 and 2018. The problem lies in the operation of the electronic motor control unit.

If the machine is not turned on for 67 hours, the program on the computer gets lost, as a result of which there is a discrepancy with the emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere. The owners of the vehicles subject to the recall have already been notified.

Now they need to come to a convenient service center for troubleshooting. In the course of the work, diagnostics will be carried out and, if necessary, the software will be updated.

All works for the owners will be carried out free of charge.
