NEWS:  Mercedes-Benz recalls floor mats from ML-Class 
DETROIT  NEWS -- August 12, 2012

AUGUST 2012 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling all-season accessory floor mats sold in model year 2012 and 2013 ML-Class vehicles because they could cause the car's gas pedal to get stuck.

Mercedes said Saturday that the mats may not conform to the contours of the car's floor. As a result, the gas pedal may not fully retract after the driver stops applying pressure, and the car may not slow down as expected. The company is advising ML-Class owners to remove the accessory floor mats.

A spokesman for Mercedes-Benz says the company is not aware of any crashes or injuries caused by the floor mat problem and is not sure how many vehicles worldwide may have the accessory floor mats. In a form filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the company said the problem may affect 8,675 vehicles in the U.S.

The company said ML-Class models have a safety system that overrides the gas pedal when the gas and brake pedals are both applied.

Mercedes-Benz, a unit of Daimler AG of Germany, said it will notify owners of the cars. Dealers will replace the floor mats for free.

AUGUST 2012 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain accessory all-season floor mats sold for use in model year 2012 and 2013 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class vehicles. This all-season floor mat may not fully conform to the contour of the vehicle's floor plan as intended. Clearance between the mat and the gas pedal may be reduced, possibly allowing the pedal to become trapped. This interference could prevent the gas pedal from retracting and the vehicle may not decelerate as expected when the driver lifts their foot from the gas pedal, which could increase the risk of a crash. Should the pedal become trapped, steady application of the brakes will allow the vehicle to be brought to a stop. Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the floor mats free of charge. Until replacement mats become available, consumers are advised to remove their floor mats from the vehicle. The safety recall is expected to begin during September 2012. Only vehicles equipped with the accessory floor mats are affected. 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. 12E-028


MARCH 2011 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain model year 2000-2002 M-Class and model year 2000-2004 M-Class AMG vehicles. The cruise control system in the affected vehicles allows the driver to disengage the system in a number of ways, including tapping the brake pedal, using the cruise control stalk, or braking the vehicle enough to reach a certain rate of deceleration. Mercedes-Benz has determined that under certain circumstances use of the brake pedal may not automatically disengage cruise control as expected by the driver, although the other means of deactivating cruise control remain fully operative. Specifically, where the driver pumps the brakes rather than applying consistent pedal force, the level of force required may be unusually high. Difficulty or delay in disengaging cruise control can increase the risk of a crash. Dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during September 2011.  11V-208


OCTOBER 2010 -- Mercedes Benz is recalling certain model year 2011 M- Class, model W164, GL-Class, model X164, E-Class, model W212, R-Class, and model V251vehicles. The O-ring may not have been properly lubricated in all cases. Lack of lubrication can lead to leakage of the fuel filter. Diesel fuel may be deposited on roads and making those roads slippery, increasing the potential for a crash. Dealers will replace the fuel filters free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during November 2010.   10V-540


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.

MARCH 2009 --   Mercedes Benz is recalling 16,130 MY 2009 M-Class W164 passenger vehicles equipped with theoptional power lift gate. As a result of a faulty seal around the rear tail lamp assembly, water may enterthe rear compartment containing the spare tire. Water contamination of the control unit for the power lift gate can result in disabling of the power lift gate motor. Water will cause a short circuit which could lead to a fire. Dealers will replace the seal of the rear tail lamp assembly with a thicker one and reposition the affected power lift gate control unit inside the chassis. This service will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2009. Owners may contact Mercedes Benz at 1-800-367- 6372.   09V-076

DECEMBER 2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling 577 MY 2008 GL-Class, M-Class, and R-Class vehicles. A defect may exist in the driving pin used to control the oil pressure of the power steering. If a defective driving pin exists in a vehicle and the pin breaks during normal vehicle turning, the normally available hydraulic support function will no longer function and steering wheel operation will be limited. Mercedes-Benz will replace the steering gears. The recall is expected to begin during January 2009.  08V682

SEPTEMBER 2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling 102,954 MY 1998-2003 M-Class vehicles. The hose clamp used to secure the power steering fluid cooling hose to the power steering fluid cooler may not provide sufficient clamping force for this connection. The loss of power steering fluid may result in diminished power steering over time and ultimately can damage the power steering pump. This could result in a loss of control and a crash without warning. An earlier recall repair performed on these vehicles may not be sufficient to prevent a future leakage or failure of the power steering hose connection (please see 03V121). Since it is not possible through inspection to identify specific vehicles that may not have been properly repaired, all vehicles repaired prior to November 15, 2003, will be repaired again. The recall is expected to begin during October 2008.  This recall was the subject of a Recall Query, RQ08-002, conducted by the Office of Defects Investigation. 08V465

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


NEWS:    2006-2008 Mercedes-Benz GL & ML class

ConsumerReports.org -- July 21,  2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling over 52,000 GL and ML class vehicles equipped with the Flex-N-Gate trailer hitch. Some of the seams connecting the hitch to the attachment bar used to connect it to the body frame do not meet specifications and may result in the hitch separating from the attachment bar.

Dealers will repair the trailer hitch and owners are urged not to use the hitch until it is repaired. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.

JUNE 2008 -- Mercedes-Benz is recalling 52,740 MY 2006-2008 ML and GL class vehicles equipped with a trailer hitch. Some of the weld seams connecting the trailer hitch receiver to the attachment bar used to secure the trailer hitch to the body frame do not meet performance specifications. This may result in the trailer hitch receiver separating from the attachment bar, creating a road hazard which may lead to a vehicle crash. The trailer hitch must not be used for any purpose until it has been repaired. Dealers will repair the trailer hitch. The recall is expected to begin during July 2008. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372. 08V242


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. 08V006


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
