The recall announced by the Federal Motor Transport Authority is now comprehensive, with 70,658 GLC vehicles having to go to workshops worldwide, according to reports.t online“.
On vehicles manufactured between 2021 and 2023, the thread in the front cross member where the tow hitch is installed may be faulty. Result: The screw connection may become loose when towing. This means that towed vehicles can suddenly become separated in the middle of traffic due to a torn bar. This would pose a serious risk to all road users and could cause serious accidents.

Since this is an official recall and not a voluntary one, the owners of all affected vehicles will be contacted and asked to attend the workshops. If you are affected but have not yet received a letter, you can contact the authorized workshop or Mercedes-Benz directly.
The threads are checked in the workshop and reworked if necessary. If this is not possible in individual cases, the entire cross member must be replaced.
