The action is due to the danger of fire and will affect cars from around the world.
The German concern Mercedes-Benz has announced a service campaign that will affect about 800,000 cars of the brand sold worldwide. All affected machines are equipped with diesel engines, Bild reported, citing a letter sent by the manufacturer to the owners of the problem cars.
According to the information, the service action will affect the diesel versions of the GLC, GLE, GLS, as well as C-, E-, S- and CLS-Class models. All cars are manufactured between January 2017 and October 2021 and are equipped with OM654 or OM65 diesel units. They have a defect in the pump of the cooling system, which can fail and thus lead to a fire.
Owners of affected cars can now contact dealership service centers to find out if their vehicles are on the list and arrange a visit. Mercedes advises its customers not to use their cars until they have been rectified.
So far, the German manufacturer has not only indicated in which countries the service action will take place. But judging by the information so far, the defective element is placed on cars sold in the largest markets on the planet, including North America, Europe, China and others.
