Mercedes-Benz C-Class cars recalled over steering issue

Possibly serious issue identified in some 2013 C-Class vehicles…

A small number of Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles sold in Australia in 2013 are being recalled after a possibly serious steering fault was identified.

The recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and involves only Mercedes-Benz C-Class cars sold between the 1st of May 2013 and the 31st of May 2013.

The ACCC recall notice advises that the bolt securing the steering coupling may not have been tightened correctly during manufacture.

This may result in the steering coupling detaching from the steering shaft.

What are the hazards?

If the steering coupling detaches from the steering shaft it may cause a loss of steering control and an increased risk of an accident.

Mercedes-Benz Australia is contacting affected C-Class owners directly by mail.

Those owners are being asked to present their vehicle to their preferred dealer to have the steering coupling bolt checked and replaced if required.
