Problem description:

Depending on the tolerances of the latch and lock trap, the rear doors may not be fully closed, although they appear to be closed. As a result, certain driving manoeuvres and road conditions could cause the rear doors to open unexpectedly while driving, increasing the risk of an accident.

Additionally, if the child safety lock is activated on the rear doors and excessive force is used on the inner door handle to attempt to open them from inside the vehicle, the closing lever of the lock mechanism may become deformed and prevent the rear doors from being opened from the inside, increasing the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class models affected by this recall were manufactured between 22 June 2018 and 9 April 2021.

Mercedes recall code: 7391003
Affected models: Vehicles with USA/CAN rear door variants. Model series: BR 463.
Vehicle numbers (worldwide): 20 647

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Mercedes Benz dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
