Mercedes-Benz recalls 8,000 C-Class

Mercedes-Benz has recalled more than 8,000 UK-based C-Class models due to a steering fault.

The recall concerns 8,145 C-Class models built between January 17 and September 22.

The potential problem centres on the steering column coupling lock, which may not have been installed correctly at Mercedes’ German factories in Sindelfingen and Bremen.

Owners of affected models would typically hear a noise from the steering column but Mercedes insists there is no threat of steering loss.

Dealers will contact owners and the correctional work should take about 30 minutes at no cost.

This latest recall follows a withdrawal issued last week of 28,000 C-Class models in Germany, and 10,500 in the US.
