Vehicle Safety Recalls

Vehicle manufacturers take safety very seriously with all companies having robust procedures to undertake recalls if a safety related fault is found in a vehicle model. As the official representatives of a vehicle marque, MIA members carry out safety related recall campaigns which involve:

  1. Identifying the vehicles in which the fault may occur (note that with the vast majority of safety recall campaigns actual failure rates are extremely low);
  2. with the help of NZTA, getting the updated records of the registered owners; and
  3. contacting these vehicle owners to have the vehicle inspected and repaired (all free of charge) at the nearest franchise dealership.

MERCEDES-BENZ  G-CLASS Model years 2013-2016

Recalled:
11 Sep 2017

Statement:
Insufficient tightening torque in the screwed joint of the steering coupling could cause excessive wear to the universal joint meshing under increased load application. As a result of the increased wear, a transmission of the desired steering torque may no longer be able to be ensured. In this case, the torque transmission between the steering wheel and steering gear would be lost and it would no longer be possible to steer the vehicle. This would increase the risk of an accident.

Owners are requested to contact an authorised Mercedes-Benz service outlet

MERCEDES-BENZ  A-CLASS Model year 2012

Recalled:
31 Aug 2017

Statement:
The starting current limiter could be overloaded during the starting procedure under certain conditions. If the starter cannot turn due to previous damage (e.g. engine damage due to water ingestion damage), an extremely high electric current would flow through the starting current limiter during the next starting procedure. If repeated start attempts were to be made, despite the engine not turning, the starting current limiter could overheat as a result of the extremely high electric current. In a worst-case scenario, surrounding component parts could be ignited as a result, thus sparking a fire.
