Mercedes-Benz V-Class/Vito (2018 – 2019)

Published on 20 September 2019

Due to incorrectly fitted brake pipes, brake fluid may leak out. This can result in increased stopping distance and to increased risk of fire due to brake fluid getting into contact with hot components.

The Mercedes-Benz V-Class/Vito models affected by this recall were manufactured between 28 November 2018 and 6 May 2019.
