Recall issued for 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedans, estates

Article by Christian A., on April 7, 2011

Mercedes-Benz announced that it is voluntarily recalling certain 2011MY Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedans (chassis code W212) and Estates (chassis code S212). Just a few days ago, a broader recall for the M-Class was issued.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that the recall affects only 41 sedans and wagons that might have inadequate adhesive in the vibration damper in the engine compartment. This increases the risk that the vibration damper and its inner mass damper ring will separate.

This resulting kinetic energy from the separated mass damper ring may harm anyone who is fixing the vehicle or anyone who’s nearby. Car owners have to bring in their vehicles to the dealers who will then examine and replace them with parts for free.

The recall is set to begin on April 11. To check if the car is included in the recall, owners are requested to determine the build date of their cars by taking a look at a sticker on the driver-side door jamb.

For more information, you may contact Mercedes at 800-367-6372 or the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.

When the carmaker announced that it was recalling 136,751 units of the Mercedes-Benz M-Klasse and M-Class AMG SUVs a few days ago, it said that it’s because of the defects related to the vehicle’s control system.

The company stated that the risk of a crash is increased because in some cases, using the brake pedal will not switch off the cruise control system.
