Mercedes-Benz Recalls More 100,000 Vehicles

Mercedes-Benz Recall For Possible Steering Failure

AMG Market News ( Mercedes-Benz is recalling more than 100,000 vehicles; about 85,000 in the U.S. and 22,000 or so in the UK and additional vehicles worldwide. The recall is for 2010 and 2011 vehicles for a potential power-steering failure according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Models for the recall include the 2010 C-class and E-class sedan, coupe and cabriolet. The potential failure is caused by a loss of power-steering fluid, which reduces the driver’s ability to control the vehicle (if the failure occurs). The loss of power steering fluid does not prohibit steering but does cause the steering to respond slower.

According to NHTSA, “Owners may not have sufficient control of the vehicle in areas such as parking lots, where maximum power steering is required, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.”

Daimler will notify the affected vehicle owners. Mercedes-Benz dealerships will be fixing the problem at no charge. For more information concerning this recall, contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372 or the National Highway Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
