Mercedes-Benz to recall 2,424 diesel cars in S.Korea


09:43, January 09, 2012

SEOUL, Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- Mercedes-Benz Korea planned to recall 2,424 diesel cars in South Korea for a defective fuel filter in five diesel models, the transportation ministry said Sunday.

Voluntary recall would be made for 2,424 diesel sedans with faulty fuel filters that could leak oil on the road, and in turn make dangerous driving conditions for cars that follow behind, according to the Ministry of Land, Transportation and Maritime Affairs.

The cars subject to recall include 549 units of C220CDI model manufactured between Jan. 3, 2007 and Dec. 15, 2008, 717 units of E220CDI produced between July 4, 2006 and Jan. 15, 2009, 529 units of ML280CDI made between April 18, 2006 and March 18, 2009, 554 units of ML300CDI produced between July 15, 2009 and April 6, 2011 and 75 units of S350BLUETEC manufactured between Aug. 5, 2010 and Feb. 2, 2011.

Owners of the defective vehicles can contact the service centers operated by Mercedes-Benz Korea for free repairs starting Monday, while those who had their cars repaired in advance can be reimbursed for their costs, the ministry said.
