Mercedes-Benz recalls 2011 diesel models in the U.S.

2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz announced that it is recalling 2,297 2011 diesel models in the United States due to concerns that fuel could leak because of a faulty engine filter. The recall consists of diesel models including the M-Class GL-Class, E-Class and R-Class.

Mercedes-Benz told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that the O-ring on the engine fuel filter may not have been properly lubricated and that the diesel fuel may be deposited on the highway and create the risk of a potential crash.

Complaints of the issue started back in July and Mercedes-Benz has already modified the part and lubrication process. The Daimler AG owned brand will start notifying owners later this month and will replace all fuel filters on recalled models.
