U.S. built Mercedes-Benz SUV's held up by Chinese customs

Mercedes-Benz sports utility vehicles built in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, are being checked for potential problems by Shanghai customs authorities, Daimler confirmed on Thursday, as a trade dispute between the United States and China heats up.

Mercedes-Benz GLE and GLS models, built in the United States between May 4 and June 12, 2018, have a brake issue which poses a "safety risk," according to a Chinese customs document circulating on Chinese social media.

The document said authorities in Shanghai had found the rear brakes on these vehicles to be "insufficient." The authenticity of the documents could not be verified with Chinese authorities.

Daimler said the company had been made aware of a potential brake issue related to vehicles in China imported from the United States.

1. So if I understand correctly

Mercedes-Benz is shipping vehicles with brake issues? That's a lot of money for a car that potentially won't stop.
