Mercedes-Benz is recalling 2015 C-Class in the US over steering problem

Article by Christian A., on October 13, 2014

Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall of over 10,500 MY2015 C-class sedans in the United States due to a production error that could cause steering wheels to squeak and fail to turn. Mercedes spokeswoman Donna Boland remarked that the issue was first noticed in September in two vehicles in Europe.

The vehicles had their “steering coupling interlock” in an open position, when they should have been released locked from the factory in Europe. The 2015 C-class model – built in Europe -- was launched in the US at the end of August, Boland said.

The spokeswoman noted models in the US are built at the carmaker’s Vance plant in Alabama, which means there is no reason to say that they also carry the same issue.

Mercedes is also recalling 28,500 MY2015 C-class sedans Germany, where customers were being told to bring their vehicles in for a 30-minute check.

The German luxury carmaker sold 6,285 C-class cars in the US last month, contributing to an 11-percent jump in sales to 27,315 units. Mercedes revamped the C-class sedans to better compete against the BMW 3-series.
