Mercedes-Benz announces recall on three models

Stuttgart, Germany – Mercedes-Benz has announced a worldwide recall to improve the quality of passenger cars in the field. The recall affects some E-Class, CLS-Class and SL-Class vehicles.

On vehicles with six- and eight-cylinder gas engines built between June 2001 and November 2004, the voltage regulator in the alternator is being checked, and replaced if necessary.

On E-Class and CLS-Class models made from January 2002 to January 2005, new battery control unit software is to enhance the on-board power supply.
