Mercedes Recall

Mercedes recall of about 85,000 cars in the United States. The recall affects the 2010 Mercedes C-Class, 2011 E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet models. Mercedes-Benz blames the recall on potential steering problems.

The luxury automaker says in a report to federal regulators that the steering systems in the cars "may fail due to the loss of power steering fluid." Mercedes-Benz says if that happens, drivers may not have sufficient control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Unlike the BMW recall where the issue didn't pose an immediate safety hazard, the Mercedes-Benz latest recall does. The steering issues caused by potential loss of power steering fluid, which can lead to loss of control of the vehicle.

The automaker is currently a privately traded company that sells luxury vehicles. Their main competitors are BMW, Lexus, Cadillac, Acura, and Infinity. Mercedes-Benz said that vehicle owners may return the cars to dealers, who will check the powering steering systems for free.
