Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,500 model-year 2018-19 Mercedes-AMG E63 sedans and E63S wagons; S63 coupes and sedans; G63 SUVs; and GT63 sedans, all equipped with turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8s
The Problem: The oil feed line to the turbocharger may leak, which in the presence of an ignition source such as hot engine or exhaust components can increase the risk of a fire.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the oil feed line to the turbocharger for free.
What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners March 27. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
