Published By : 25 Mar 2015 | Published By : QYRESEARCH
Mercedes-Benz has recalled a bunch of its cars of different models. These models had a serious potential issue which was associated with its rear tail lamps and another issue which could result in a potential fire. This news became known as the documents posted on the website of National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The tail light of various models had a problem was first noticed back in the month of December and even though it has now come to light there is still no word on when this recall will be happening. Additionally, there is no fixed schedule for the fire risk related recall.
Firstly, the tail lamp recall will be concerning over 30,0000 CLS class cars which are located in the U.S. Out of these around 2012-13 CLS 63x, 2015 CLS 400s, 2012-15 CLS 550s, and 2014-15 CLS 63P will be recalled. This problem majorly revolves around the LED rear tail lamps and might not be able to light up properly on the sides which pose a safety risk. This issue will be fixed by the dealers once Mercedes-Bend initiates the recall.
However, another recall is much more serious. This recall concerns the 2015 C300 four matic and C400 four matic which are the affected vehicles. These cars were manufactured during the period of April and July in the year 2014. According to the documents, from the National Highway Traffic Administration, these models might not have secured properly to the fuel tank along with the wires being pitched between it and the fuel tank.
These wires then can lead to the fuel pump fail and stalling of the car. However, another issue that could result with this problem is the fuel delivery module coming loose and leaking fuel out, which can eventually cause a fire.
