Mercedes-Benz is in progress of recalling all of the G-65s for speed issues. The model delivers too much speed when going backward.

Some, initially, laid the blame on its 6L twin-turbo V12 unit. They reasoned that perhaps the engine generates so much speed that the G-wagon even burst too fast when reversing.

The Mercedes-Benz G-65s may have been set with the improper reverse speed limitation software

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had a say in the issue. It claimed the Mercedes-Benz G-65 may have been set with the improper reverse speed limitation software. According to their inspection: 

These vehicles may be equipped with the incorrect reverse speed limitation software. While in reverse, any abrupt changes in steering while exceeding 16 MPH may cause the vehicle to become unstable.

When a Mercedes-Benz G-65 is recalled its engine control software will then get updated so that its reverse speed has a more proper limitation.
