Mercedes Benz has decided to recall 660,000 vehicles in China due a possible oil leakage. The company believes that a seal between a fuel pump and a fuel pipe could weaken overtime. Such a damage can lead to a possible leakage overtime, especially in colder temperatures. The recall was reported on Sunday. As per various different media reports, the company plans to recall a total of 668,954 vehicles due to a possible leakage. The recall will begin on December 18. Most of the vehicles were manufactured in China by the Beijing Benz Automotive Co.
Around 12,000 variants were produced by Fujian Benz Automotive Co, and an estimate of 36,000 models were imported. Mercedes Dealers will replace the parts that can lead to possible oil leakage free of cost, and just recently the company recalled over 4,000 G-class sedans for having incorrect child-safety lock labels.
It has also been reported that this recall, set to being on Dec 18, is not just limited to just one category or class of Mercedes. The company plans to recall various different models that are from February 2013 to June 2017 and include C-class, E-class, V-class, GLK, CLS, SLC, GLC SUVs and VITO vehicles.
