Mercedes recalls Maybachs over electrical glitch, fire risk

The campaign affects around 1,700 vehicles sold in the US market.

Mercedes-Benz has launched a recall campaign for the 2018 Maybach S450 and S560.

The company has discovered that two nuts that secure the power bars inside the pre-fuse box may not have been installed during the production process.

"If the power bars inside the pre-fuse box are not secure, this could lead to higher electrical resistance between the power bars, increasing the risk of fire," the company wrote in its defect report.

Intermittent contact between the bars can also cause a loss of vehicle functions including engine operation, seat-belt functions and instrument cluster operation.

The repair campaign affects around 1,700 vehicles sold in the US market.
