More than 300,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles have been recalled in the US. Moreover, before the repair work, drivers are advised not to drive their cars.
The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced a major new recall campaign. 292,287 Mercedes-Benz vehicles that were sold between 2006 and 2012 in the United States and another 31,577 vehicles from Canada should enter the tech service as soon as possible. The recall of cars from other markets has not yet been reported.
The reason for the recall is serious: facts of corrosion of the brake booster were revealed on the machines. This defect can lead to brake fluid leakage, which greatly increases the risk of an accident.
The recall campaign covers ML SUVs with different power units (including AMG versions), GL, and R-Class single-volume cars.
According to representatives of Mercedes-Benz, the mechanic will have to inspect the brake system at the tech service. If there are no signs of corrosion, the machine can continue to operate. Otherwise, repairs will be made.
