Mercedes-Benz Australia (MB) has recalled 30,105 vehicles, citing issues with its sunroof glass panel and its sliding roof frame as the cause. The vehicle models impacted include the company’s: C, CLK, CLS and E Class models that were manufactured between 2000 and 2010.
This is one of several recalls made by the German manufacturer, as it issued a similar recall in the United States in January 2020. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued the visibility recall which affected 744,852 vehicle owners. Vehicle models from the vehicle manufacturer’s C-, CLK-, CLS- and E-Class lines sold between 2001 and 2011 were recalled because of a bonding issue between the glass panel and the sliding roof frame may deteriorate and cause a detachment, according to the NHTSA.
Affected vehicle owners are requested to contact their most convenient auto glass repair and replacement shop or MB retailer for an inspection of their sunroof. According to the ACCC, repairs to the sunroofs will be done as needed at no cost to the vehicle owner.
