After it was announced that BMW was recalling vehicles after the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that a design flaw could lead to injuries, Mercedes-Benz launched a recall campaign impacting thousands of its GLC-Class SUVs and AMG CLC43 SUVs.
These vehicles are being recalled after the company learned that the fixed panoramic moonroof in these vehicles may have insufficient bonding, which could allow the panels to separate while the vehicle is in motion. In this case, a crash may occur and serious injuries may also take place.
Impacted vehicles will have the bonding on the moonroof panels inspected and if needed, it will be corrected. Fixes will be be carried out for free.
Impacted cars include the 2017 and 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class SUVs and the Mercedes-AMG GLC43 SUVs. The fact impacted vehicles are from the 2017 and 2018 year makes means the company has learned about the issue promptly and acted accordingly.
