G-Class Water Spill Center Console Electrical Fire
So get this my 2016 G-Wagon with 28K miles on it, had an electrical fire overnight. Burning the entire center and front console. According to Mercedes this was caused because of a spill of some sort, coffee, water, etc.
Has anyone had this happen to them or heard of this? You would think all electrical components would be sealed directly underneath a sun roof. Besides who hasn't spilled something on their center console at least once?! Seems really crazy that water could cause something to burn even when the vehicle was sitting off overnight.
