Approximately 2,500 model-year 2018-19 Mercedes-AMG E63 sedans and E63S wagons; S63 coupes and sedans; G63 SUVs; and GT63 sedans, all equipped with turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 engines are being recalled due to oil feed line issues. The oil feed line to the turbocharger may leak, which in the presence of an ignition source such as a hot engine or exhaust components increases the risk of a fire.
Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners on March 27. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To remedy the issue, dealers will replace the oil feed line to the turbocharger.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
