Mercedes-Benz are recalling 85,000 of its cars worldwide over a power steering problem. Most C-Class models and E-Class models are affected.
The problem affects C-Class saloon and estate models, and E-Class saloon, estate, coupé and convertible models built between June 2009 and February 2010. The problem involves escaping fluid from the power steering system. 22,355 of its cars being recalled are in the United Kingdom reports Yahoo News UK & Ireland.
There have been no reports of any accidents or incidents and Mercedes are working closely with the Vehicle Operator Services Agency (VOSA) to write to all owners of the aforementioned vehicle models. Anyone suffering from apparent steering problems should contact their local dealer straight away, says Mercedes. Once there, the repair work which involves tightening a nut within the steering pump, should last no more than 30 minutes according to Sky News.
The recall follows just days after BMW recalled 350,000 cars because of braking problems . There have also been recalls for Ferrari in September, 410,000 Hondas recalled in March, Lexus and Toyota announced recalls in July this year as Digital Journal had extensively covered.
