HÀ NỘI — Mercedes-Benz Việt Nam is recalling 1,648 vehicles over a steering gearbox issue.

According to the German car maker, the recalled vehicles include the C200, C250, C300, E200, E250 and E300 models.

The recalled units were manufactured between June 2016 and November 2017. 

On the affected Mercedes Benz cars, the steering wheel becomes tighter than usual and there are warning sounds and a red warning light on the speedometer.

The fault was due to the steering gearbox in some C-Class and E-Class receiving inaccurate measurement signals because of tiny cracks on the circuit board.

The steering software could deactivate the power steering system upon receiving these erroneous signals.

Checking and replacing steering gearbox is expected to take 4.5 hours for each car.

The recall programme will begin on July 25, 2019 and will end on December 31, 2022. — VNS
