Mercedes-Benz has just announced it is recalling over 10,000 examples of the latest-generation C-Class in the United States.
The recall has been triggered because some cars may lose steering function at low speed and in total, 10,509 vehicles are affected by the recall. The German automaker has confirmed it has reports of two incidents from outside the U.S. relating to the steering issue but no injuries were reported.
The problem stems from the fact that production workers failed to correctly install a steering component on the C300 and C400 variants with the optional 4Matic all-wheel drive system,
Affected owners have already been notified and the repairs will be carried out free of charge.
