Mercedes-Benz Is In Trouble With The Law Down Under

Reuters reports the country’s consumer rights and watch organization, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), has sued the German automaker over allegations it downplayed the risks of exploding airbags. The Commission claims staff at the Mercedes call center in the country told concerned owners it was okay to continue driving the vehicles “that were more than six years old and that the recall was precautionary as there have been no major incidents.”

Some of the recalled vehicles included older generations of the Mercedes C-Class, E-Class, SLS AMG, and the old SLK. Basically, Mercedes is being accused of downplaying the safety risks and drivers were thus at greater risk of injury or death. “These alleged representations used language which was inconsistent with the requirements of the compulsory recall notice,” the lawsuit states.
