Another day another auto recall, this time it comes from the prestige market with the 2010 C-Class and the 2010-2011 E-Class. There is said to be a problem with the steering, which in some cases affected vehicles could become hard to control.
This is not the first auto recall due to steering issues, only last week GM had to recall the 2010 Cadillac SRX, more details can be found here. Mercedes-Benz said that the problem is due to a fitting that might not be tightened enough on the power steering line, as this is a high pressure system this could force fluid to pump out.
According to NYTimes, the German carmaker has said that there could be an instance when the driver could not have as much control as they should, the most obvious time would be when trying to park.
However, if you were to lack control of the steering while driving on the highway, then this could lead to a crash. It is not thought that any accidents have occurred, but there have been a number of complaints from unhappy customers.
Do you own a 2010 C-Class and the 2010-2011 E-Class, have you been affected by this recall?
