Mercedes-Benz V-Class Out and About in Winter Testing

Just after that massive polar vortex and with possibly a new one on the way, coupled with the sun’s pronounced lack of activity, the temperatures we’re experiencing are perfect for cold-weather testing. That’s something that the new 2014 Mercedes-Benz V-Class took head-on recently, as it was spotted testing in the snowy wild ahead of its official reveal on January 30. The new V-Class is set to replace the R-Class luxury MPV in terms of its role within the automaker’s vehicle lineup, although it is being marketed as the successor to the Viano MPV line.

Heath Ledger Commemorated On A Mercedes-Benz R-Class

Heath Ledger is considered by a number of people to be the best person who played the Joker in a Batman movie.

Mercedes R-Class Was Pulled Out from the US

The Mercedes R-Class is a wonderful car, no doubt about that. With a V6 engine, lovely leather interiors and all-wheel drive, which translates to power and luxury what more can you ask for? However, in the highly competitive US market, these characteristics actually became problems. Not that Americans don’t like the car, it’s just that great features comes with an even greater price tag. Starting at $52,690, the R350 4Matic and the R350 BlueTec diesel with a tag of $53,840, it only managed to attract about 300 buyers. Mercedes spokesman Christian Bokich said the version is not working in the market, “to the extent that we can no longer make… Continue Reading »

2011 diesel models recalled for potential fuel leak

Goodness, gracious. Don’t say we didn’t tell you earlier. As of right now, 2,297 Mercedes-Benz diesel models have been recalled because of a potential fuel leak problem. These specific models are the 2011 E-Class, GL-Class, R-Class and M-Class rangers. Apparently, there’s an o-ring somewhere in the fuel system that wasn’t installed correctly during production. Mercedes-Benz did the right thing by informing the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (a.k.a. NHTSA) that they failed to lubricate the said o-ring before installing it into the fuel system of these models. This brings about high risk of fuel leaking from the system, specifically the fuel filter. NHTSA officials are actually more worried about… Continue Reading »

Fuel filter leak recall issued on 2011 models

Heads up, folks! If you’re driving a 2011 E-Class, GL-Class, M-Class or R-Class, then you’d better call your dealer right away.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says there is an o-ring on the fuel system that may not have been lubricated and installed properly, thus causing fuel to spill out. The recall bulletin from NHTSA provides specific details on diesel variants of these models, but our friends over at The Car Connection says otherwise, confirming that the problem affects gasoline variants as well. So be warned and be safe. Your dealer should… Continue Reading »
