OCTOBER 2012 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain model year 2012 E350 and E550 Coupe vehicles, manufactured April 2, 2012, through June 29, 2012. Improper stitching of the right side window curtain air bag may cause it to not deploy as intended in the affected vehicles. In the event of an accident necessitating the deployment of the right window curtain air bag, the improper stitching may cause it to deflate more quickly than intended, reducing the protection it may provide, resulting in an increased risk of injury to vehicle occupants. Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the right side window curtain air bag. The recall campaign is expected to begin in November 2012. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.  12V492000

NEWS:   Mercedes recalls vehicles over leaky fuel filters

YAHOO NEWS -- November 5,  2010 – Daimler AG said Friday it will recall about 2,300 Mercedes-Benz sport utility vehicles and sedans to fix fuel filters that could leak diesel fuel.

The recall covers certain diesel versions of the 2011 E Class sedan and 2011 GL Class, M Class and R Class SUVs and crossover vehicles. The vehicles included in the recall were built from November 2009 through October 2010.

The automaker said a lack of lubrication in the diesel engine fuel filters could cause the filters to leak.

Fuel could leak onto the road, causing slippery conditions and a potential crash.

Mercedes-Benz USA spokesman Rob Moran said the automaker was not aware of any injuries connected with the recall.

Owners will be notified later this month. Dealers will replace the fuel filter free of charge.

NEWS:    Mercedes recalling 85,000 autos over power steering

YAHOO NEWS -- October 11,  2010 –  Daimler AG said Monday it was recalling about 85,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the United States to prevent a loss of power steering fluid.

The government's auto safety agency said in a posting to its website Monday that the recall involved Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles from the 2010 model year and Mercedes-Benz E-Class vehicles from the 2010-2011 model years. The recall involves vehicles produced between June 2009 and late February 2010.

Daimler told the government that the loss of fluid could make it difficult to control the vehicle in a parking lot, where maximum power steering is required.

The German automaker said in a statement that the gradual loss of fluid was generally followed by a whining noise from the power steering's pump, which could make it difficult to steer while parking.

Daimler said the vehicle remains steerable.   The recall is expected to begin this month.

JULY 2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling 404 MY 2006-2008 M-Class, R-Class, MY 2005-2009 SLK-Class, MY 2005-2008 C-Class, MY 2003-2004 and 2006-2008 CLK-Class, MY 2003-2008 E-Class, MY 2004 and 2008 CL-Class, MY 2008 CLS-Class, MY 2004 and 2007-2008 S-Class, MY 2003 G-Class, and MY 2003-2004, 2006 and 2009 SL-Class vehicles. A software calibration number (SCN) coding received on the affected vehicles during a recent workshop visit was incorrect. Depending on the model year and model affected, the results of an incorrect SCN coding can affect a number of vehicle safety and emission functions including the following types of functions: (1) the fuel gauge readings may be incorrect; (2) a stuck fuel-level sensor may not be displayed in the instrument cluster; (3) the OBD system may cause the check engine light to illuminate incorrectly; and, (4) the speedometer may be out of tolerance. In the event of a vehicle crash, the electrical fuel pump may not receive a crash signal that is required for the fuel pump to disconnect and prevent future fuel delivery as designed. Dealers will recode the SCN. The recall is expected to begin during August 2008.  08V303

JANUARY 2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling 9,004 MY 2007 E-Class, GL-Class, M-Class and R-Class vehicles equipped with diesel engines. The crankshaft sensor could fail due to separation of bond wires from the lead frame in the sensor. This results in an interruption in the electrical connection in the chip housing of the sensor. When this happens, the vehicle may lose power rather than enter a limp-home mode. In addition, the vehicle cannot be restarted after failure of the electrical connection in the sensor, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the crankshaft sensor. The recall is expected to begin during February 2008. 08V-006


NEWS:   Mercedes Recalls Thousands of Cars in U.S. for Sensor

Jan. 21 (Bloomberg) -- Daimler AG, the world's second- biggest maker of luxury vehicles, is recalling more than 9,000 Mercedes-Benz diesel-engine cars in the U.S. from the 2007 model year because a potential sensor problem could cause the cars to lose power.

In certain cars, wires could separate from the crankshaft sensor frame, causing an interruption in the electrical connection to the chip holding the sensor, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a report on its recall Web site.

As a result, the car ``cannot be restarted after failure of the electrical connection in the sensor, increasing the risk of a crash,'' according to the report. Cars in the E, GL, M and R classes are affected, and dealers will begin replacing the sensor next month, the agency said.

Mercedes spokesmen Robert Moran and Christoph Horn didn't immediately return a call or e-mail messages seeking comment. The Wall Street Journal first reported the recall earlier today
