Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 17,800 model year 2019-2021 G550 and G63 AMG cars.

The company said the components within the door latch may prevent the rear doors from latching or opening properly.

While the rear door may appear closed even when the latch is not fully engaged, Mercedes-Benz USA stated the door may open while the vehicle is being driven, increasing the risk of injury or a crash.

It is also noted that damaged latch components may prevent the rear door from being opened from the inside, increasing the risk of injury.

In respect of what to do to correct the error, dealers will replace the rear door latches free of charge, the company said.

Vehicles repaired prior to this recall must return to dealers to have remedy performed.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 13, 2021.

Vehicle owners may contact MBUSA Customer Service on (800) 367-6372.

In the same vein, BMW of North America is recalling two model year 2021 230i and M240i vehicles.

According to the auto firm, supports within the roof liner may be insecurely attached.

Consequently, the support may separate from the roof liner and fall into the passenger compartment, increasing the risk of injury during a crash necessitating the deployment of the head airbag, the company stated.

In regard to what to do, the company said that dealers will inspect and repair or replace the roof liner as necessary, free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 5, 2021, and affected vehicle owners may contact BMW Customer Service on (800) 525-7417.
