Lightbulb 2015 Mercedes C-Class recalled over steering issue

Filed under: Sedan, Recalls, Mercedes-Benz, Luxury

This probably isn't the start Mercedes-Benz execs in Stuttgart were hoping for with the launch of the critically praised 2015 C-Class. The company is recalling 10,500 examples of the US-market sedan because the steering wheels squeak and won't turn, The Detroit News reports.

Mercedes is blaming the problem on a production issue affecting the steering coupling interlock, according to the report. Speaking to Autoblog, Mercedes spokesman Donna Boland confirmed the issue was first reported on a pair of European models. In those cases, the interlock was not "in the correct locked position."

"We have no reason to believe that models produced here in the US would be affected but, in an abundance of caution, we want to be sure," Boland told Autoblog.

Mercedes has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is in the process of notifying customers, who will need to report in for a free check of the steering coupling interlock2015 Mercedes C-Class recalled over steering issue originally appeared on Autoblog on Sun, 12 Oct 2014 10:55:00 EST.
