Approximately 2,400 model-year 2019 Mercedes-Benz G550 and Mercedes-AMG G63 SUVs are being recalled because the front door wiring harnesses may have been improperly routed causing damage to the individual wires during opening and closing of the front doors. As a result, safety features such as the side impact restraint system, the automatic unlocking of the door in the event of a crash, or the vehicle location in an emergency call could malfunction, increasing the risk of an injury.
Mercedes-Benz began notifying owners on Jan. 14. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372 or the National Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect and then modify or replace the front door wiring harness if any damage has occurred.
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.
