Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Mercedes GLC estate?

The GLC will have been used in tight city-centre car parks, so it’s worth checking the bodywork for the minor scuffs that are easily picked up in such places, as well as carefully checking the alloy wheels for kerb damage. Check also the operation of the seats, especially in the rear, since these will have been raised and lowered often.

What are the most common problems with a used Mercedes GLC estate?

Reason for recall

Where a control unit coding was updated in a workshop between 3 December 2016 and 5 December 2016 the coding may not correspond to the specification and may trigger unplanned action in the vehicle. The safety and emissions systems may not react as design intent.

How the manufacturer will repair

Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and update the software in the corresponding control units.

Reason for recall

The propellant mix in certain seatbelt pre-tensioners ignitors may be incorrect. If the front seatbelt pre-tensioners are deployed the lock function of the pre-tensioners cannot be guaranteed.

How to check if the vehicle is recalled

Contact the local MERCEDES BENZ dealership or manufacturer. You will not need to pay for anything involving the recall.

How the manufacturer will repair
