Mercedes V12 G-Wagen Force To Return As Rollover Risk Increases

By  | 

Mercedes will be recalling the 2017 Mercedes-AMG G 65 model after it was revealed that the vehicle may not have updated the engine control-unit software that is supposed to limit the reverse speed of the vehicle.

Because of the missing system, the vehicle can exceed the speed limit for reversing and cause the vehicle to become unstable which would lead to a higher risk of a rollover. Because of that, Mercedes will have to recall 20 units of their G65.

Those affected by the recall would have to bring their Mercedes-Benz AMG G65 to their dealers for a free software upgrade. While the owner deal with the issue, the rest of us can look forward to seeing the 2019 Mercedes G-Class model.

The vehicle was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. Unlike the previous model, the new Mercedes will not be fitted with the solid front axle but it will come with the independent double-wishbone suspension and electric rack-and-pinion steering instead.
