Mercedes-Benz automobiles are a fire hazard.

According to an NHTSA report, Mercedes-Benz is recalling 61,450 of its SUVs because water may leak into electrical components and trigger a short circuit that might ignite a fire.

The company said that a “deviation in the assembly process” could cause the air conditioner drainage hose in the vehicles to leak water.

In the assessment, Mercedes-Benz stated that water infiltration into the foot wells “may cause corrosion and/or short circuits to electrical components, increasing the danger of fire.” Also, there is a chance that the doors won’t unlock and the emergency call (eCall) feature won’t work, which raises the possibility of harm. Also, there’s a chance that the engine won’t start or may go into limp mode, which raises the crash risk.

According to the research, drivers may observe dripping carpeting in the foot wells or fogged windows if there is a leak.

Cadillac, GMC, Chevrolet, and more brands had their transmissions recalled.
7,840 vehicles of various makes and models may have transmissions that were produced with an improper part, according to General Motors’ NHTSA recall report.

The driver-side half-shaft could disengage from the transmission as a result of the transmission having been designed with the wrong sun gear, according to the research. “This issue can result in the driver-side half-shaft disengaging from the transmission, losing mechanical park and/or affecting propulsion.”

According to the analysis, a loss of propulsion or mechanical park might raise the chance of an accident and roll-away. If the issue is present, drivers may hear a clicking or grinding sound coming from the front of the car.
