Consumer Reports announced that Mercedes-Benz instigated a recall of vehicles due to their fuel filter, which may leak. According to news reports, 6,872 cars were included in the recall. The leaky fuel may result in a deadly fire, and potentially an auto accident if the fuel spilled onto the roadway. The recall includes “models from the 2011 E-, GL-, ML- and R-Class lines, as well as the 2012 S-Class.” The Family Car Guide said the “safety recall involves 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class models built from July 2010 through February 2011, 2011 R-Class built from April 2010 through April 2011, 2011 ML-Class built from January 2010 through March 2011, 2011 GL-Class built from March 2010 through March 2011, and 2012 model year S-Class vehicles.” Owners will be contacted and their vehicles wil be inspected in order to fix the necessary parts free of charge. The recall will officially begin this month. “Dealerships will install an improved fuel line for the injector at risk and a damper to quell the vibrations,” Consumer Reports explains.
