US Owners of Mercedes Benz SUV Requested to Return Their Cars

Mercedes-Benz USA has issued a recall for brand latest 2011 E-Class, M-Class, GL-Class, and R-Class models in the U.S. due to leaky fuel filters. supposedly, the O-ring on the fuel filter may not have been properly lubricated, and that can result in fuel spilling out onto roads, causing greasy unsafe conditions for other drivers, according to the U.S. NHTSA security agency. The main danger, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, is that diesel fuel dripped on roads can make the surface slippery and amplify the chance of crashes.

Since all of the affected vehicles come from the 2011 model year, this recall is not especially big: around 2,300 vehicles to be recalled recalled, whereas Mercedes Benz USA dealers will replace the fuel filters gratis of charge.

Estimates are that this problem potentially affects a few cars in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and other GCC countries too, though it is unknown if any 2011 cars have already been shipped here or not as we have been out of touch with their Middle East office. The fault can also arise in diesel E-Class vehicles built from December 2009 to October 2010.
