Australia has called back more than 17,600 Mercedes-Benz cars.

Thousands of Mercedes-Benz cars have been called back because of a possible problem that could lead to crashes and deaths.

More than 17,600 Mercedes-Benz cars were recalled quickly from all over Australia because of fears that they could cause deaths or serious accidents.

Due to a possible problem with the brake system, owners of the cars have been told to "stop driving your car right away."

The ML-Class, GL-Class, and R-Class models that are affected have model years that range from 2005 to 2013, or up to 2016 if they were privately imported.

There are worries that corrosion could weaken the seal on the brake booster, which could make it harder for the car to stop.

Hard braking can also damage the brake booster if there is a lot of corrosion.

Owners have been told to call a Mercedes-Benz service center "as soon as possible" to set up an inspection.

If a visual inspection shows signs of advanced corrosion, a guided diagnostic test will be done.

If the brake booster on the car fails this test, it will need to be replaced.

Mercedes-Benz Australia said it will help owners find a different way to get around until the parts are fixed.

The same car models were called back in the US last week, affecting 292,287 cars.

Mercedes-Benz AG, which makes Mercedes-Benz cars, said that there had been no accidents, injuries, or deaths because of the problem.
