Mercedes-AMG GT S Recalled Over Faulty Carbon Fiber Driveshaft

Mercedes-AMG GT S Recalled Over Faulty Carbon Fiber Driveshaft

Mercedes is recalling 135 AMG GT S sports cars over a problem with the carbon fiber driveshaft. 

Built between June 1 and July 24, 2015, these models have a driveshaft with insufficient bonding to the engine/transmission flange, which can lead to the shaft separating. In this scenario, the vehicle will lose all power, increasing the risk of a collision.

Mercedes says it hasn’t received any reports of injuries due to this problem. Mercedes dealers will inspect the driveshaft and replace it if there is an issue with the bonds. Dealers will also be able to access MB Select funds, a service that helps to ease the burden for owners. Through the service, dealers can get the owners things like gift cards to local restaurants and businesses.
