Mercedes-Benz recalls 5800 cars

Mercedes-Benz has become the latest automaker forced to order a recall due to a potential fire risk on almost 6,000 of its luxury sedans, coupes and crossovers. the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ordering the recall of about 5,800 of the German maker’s products covering eight separate models because of a faulty fuel filter flange. According to regulators, a defect in the molding process can led the flange to crack and possibly spill gasoline during refueling. That, in turn, could cause a fire. The models covered by the recall include the C300, CL550, CL63 AMG, E350, GLK350, S400 Hybrid, S550 and S63 AMG. The maker plans to notify owners and begin the repairs next month at no charge once dealers across the country have a sufficient supply of replacement parts. The Mercedes recall follows a series of other fire-related safety actions that now have affected around 4 million vehicles in the U.S. market alone this year. Ford most recently recalled its newest Fusion and Escape models because of a potential engine coolant leak. The fluid could come in contact with hot engine components and catch fire. It was the third fire-related recall of the Escape this year.
