If the spark plugs fail, parts could enter the combustion chamber and cause engine damage, according to the manufacturer.

Mercedes-Benz Australia has recalled seven examples of its Mercedes-AMG A45 S and Mercedes-AMG CLA45 S, citing a potential fault with spark plug durability.

The affected Mercedes-AMG vehicles were sold between 3 February 2020 and 24 April 2020 (Model Year 2020).

The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says: “The spark plugs in vehicles may not meet specification. As a result the spark plugs may fail during regular use.”

“If the spark plugs fail and parts enter the combustion chamber this could lead to engine damage. An engine stall may occur which would increase the risk of an accident and injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.”

CarAdvice has reached out to a spokesperson for Mercedes-Benz Australia to find out if any local examples are affected. This story will be updated when more information becomes available.
