2019 Mercedes-Benz V-Class recalled due to faulty head restraints

Mercedes-Benz Australia has issued a recall for 10 of its 2019 V-Class vans affected by a faulty head restraint component.

Lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), the defect relates to head restraint padding that can separate from the securing rods.

Mercedes-Benz reports that during an accident, the exposed rods and missing padding may cause injury to vehicle occupants.

Mercedes-Benz Australia says affected owners should call their nearest dealership to arrange inspection and repair of the faulty unit.

A full list of vehicle identification numbers of the 10 cars included in the recall can be found here.
