Mercedes-Benz is recalling 26,116 model year 2019-2021 G550 and AMG G63 vehicles. The front axle wiring harness may chafe against an oil cooler and become damaged, which can cause a loss of anti-lock brakes and electronic stability control. A loss of anti-lock brakes or electronic stability control increases the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed April 18, 2023. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at 800-367-6372 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and install a protective sleeve or replace the front axle wiring harness, as necessary.
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.
