Approximately 6,600 model-year 2019-20 Mercedes-Benz G550 and Mercedes-AMG G63 SUVs are being recalled because the embossed lock symbol for the child safety lock on the rear doors may indicate the incorrect lock status of the child safety lock. If an unrestrained child unexpectedly opens the door, they may fall from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.
Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners on June 30. 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 install a label on the rear doors with the correct operating direction.
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.
