Following a disturbing trend, Mercedes-Benz has announced another recall of nearly 750,000 vehicles in the United States. The recall, which is due to faulty sunroofs at risk to detach from the car, impacts Mercedes-Benz model years spanning over a decade. The model years in question are 2001-2011; the models in question are the C-, CLK-, CLS-, and E-Class.
The National Highway Safety Traffic Administration (NHSTA) has been on top of this recall and elaborated on exactly what the defects are and how they can impact your Mercedes-Benz. Last week, they offered this, “The bonding between the glass panel and the sliding roof frame may deteriorate, possibly resulting in the glass panel detaching from the vehicle.” The National Highway Safety Traffic Administration also claims Mercedes-Benz will notify its owners on or after February 14th. The company is expected to offer free inspections and replacements to those possibly afflicted by the recall.
The following is a comprehensive list of all models possibly affected:
