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.

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 »

GM nominates the R-Class for North American Car of the Year

Daimler AG and General Motors were once tied together in a partnership that didn’t quite go as planned. Back then, too many things were at stake and both companies realized that they didn’t make the perfect team.
