More than 40 models of Mercedes Benz vehicles are being recalled to address a faulty cruise control, according to news reports .
Mercedes Benz said it is recalling 41 models of its luxury vehicles, including its 2000-2002 M-Class SUVs and 41 models of 2011 E-Class wagons and sedans because of reports the cruise control wouldn’t disengage. The vehicles affected were built between July 8 and July 12, 2010, according to news reports.
According to Mercedes, the problem stems from the engine compartment’s vibration damper, which has too little adhesive.
Consumers with the recalled vehicles can check the designated recall dates on the sticker in the driver’s side door jam, according to news reports.
So far, no reports of personal injury or car accidents have been reported in connection to this recall.
As a Columbia personal injury lawyer , I’m glad that Mercedes was able to recall the vehicles before any accidents or injuries were reported. Owners of the recalled Mercedes vehicles should contact their dealer as soon as they are notified of the fix. They should also report any injuries or car accidents related to the cruise control.
