Mercedes Recalls AMG GT S in US over Driveshaft Issue
  • Mercedes-AMG GT S Recalled for a problem in Driveshaft

Mercedes-AMG GT S coupes have been recalled after customers made several complaints about its driveshaft.

Mercedes-AMG GT S was hailed by potential customers after its release in July 2015. However, recently a few complaints were made about the carbon-fiber drive shaft of car which made Mercedes recall all AMG GT S cars.

These GT-S will be recalled in order to check the fault in carbon-fiber driveshaft, according to AutoBlog. For this purpose all 135 cars will be recalled which were sold earlier. Along with that a stop-sale order has been issued by company for these vehicles until the problem is fixed too. 

The problem arose due to the failing of an adhesive bond between carbon-fiber shaft and the flange. The reports suggested that in many cases the bond can fail or become lose at times too. This kind of failure will lead to loss of power to the rear wheels. This can also happen when the car is in motion resulting in deceleration of car. 

Complaints were received by company and National Highway Authorities however no injury or accidental deaths were reported in those complaints. 

The fix which is being used for the problem is pretty easy. All the customers will be required to take their cars to their dealers. They will give the vehicles and overall inspection and will check its driveshaft.

After that they will replace the carbon-fiber driveshaft of the car if they will see any problem in it. If the shaft will be in great condition then it will be given clearance by the company for a safe drive. 

The recall is scheduled to begin on July 1, 2016. Mercedes will reach out to its customers by offering a press release and notification for them.
