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.

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
