Mercedes-Benz has recalled almost 10 lakh cars across the world. This recall has been issued to check and deal with advanced corrosion on some brake components that might be dangerous during long-term usage. This recall is being issued for older Mercedes-Benz models like the ML-Class, GL-Class, and R-Class.
Mercedes-Benz is one of the most respected car manufacturers in the world. Driving or owning a Mercedes-Benz car is a premium experience and some would place it close to perfectionism. By displaying great perfectionism, Mercedes-Benz takes responsibility for its cars and their proper functioning even several years after the car was delivered to the buyer.
In the past, Mercedes-Benz has put this responsibility into action by recalling cars to fix any issues irrespective of how big or small the issues or their consequences are. Now, once again Mercedes-Benz has shown responsibility for older cars produced by the brand.
Production of the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class and ML-Class stopped in 2015 while the R-Class saw the end of the production line back in 2017. Despite these cars being that old, Mercedes-Benz has stepped up and issued a recall to fix a defective component in the braking system.
Mercedes-Benz issued a statement that said, "We have found that in some of those vehicles, the function of the brake booster could be affected by advanced corrosion in the joint area of the housing. It might be possible for a particularly strong or hard braking manoeuvre to cause mechanical damage to the brake booster. In such a very rare case, it would not be possible to decelerate the vehicle via the service brake. Thus the risk of a crash or injury would be increased."
The issue then seems quite simple. The advanced corrosion or corrosion that appears before its expected time can cause mechanical damage to the brake booster and this might, in turn, result in the loss of braking power.
To solve this issue, Mercedes-Benz is recalling 9,93,407 vehicles sold in different countries across the globe. These cars were all manufactured between 2004 and 2015. This, as it turns out, isn't the only recall issued by Mercedes-Benz in the recent past.
Nearly 10 lakh Mercedes-Benz cars were recalled in 2021 to fix an issue with the emergency calling system that Mercedes-Benz found, was transmitting the wrong location to emergency services personnel in the event of a crash. This issue was fixed through over-the-air updates to the software.
Thoughts On Nearly 10 Lakh Mercedes-Benz Cars Being Recalled
Recalls are not a simple and easy process. It is extremely draining for a manufacturer as both time and money are lost on recalling the affected vehicles. However, Mercedes-Benz is a brand that sticks to its ethics and it seems like the brand is still recording data and testing its older vehicles to judge their performance.
