A Recall For The Mercedes-Benz M-Class

images1.jpgA recall has been issued by Mercedes-Benz for 102,954 of its M-Class cars, from model years 1998-2003, because of a clamp that malfunctions on the power-steering hose.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that it is possible for the hose clamp to come loose resulting in power-steering fluid, and the power-steering system might break down over time. If this goes unchecked, the power-steering pump could be damaged and even cause people to lose control while driving.

There was a previous recall that should have taken care of this problem, however Mercedes-Benz doesn’t believe that the repairs made were sufficient, which is why they are issuing a recall for all vehicles, including the ones that were repaired previously.

Unfortunately, you never know when there will be a recall on your vehicle, so it is important to stay informed on the latest car news. Also, you should protect yourself with a roadside assistance program that will assist you in the event of a breakdown.
