Mercedes-Benz has issued recall for the S-Class, soon after entering production.
According to report, the luxury sedan is equipped with shorter inner tie rods, which cab give birth to serious steering problems. These rods are not reliable for proper driving, thus making the car comparatively more accident prone. All the owners of the sedan have been contacted by the luxury carmaker and have been suggested to consult an authorised dealer, where the service technicians can look into the inner tie rods, inspect them and replace the same, if necessary. These services will be provided without any additional cost. According to report, a company spokesperson said that nearly 1,400 cars, which have already been delivered to customers, are being recalled for inspection, through a letter informing the owners containing the word "immediately". The Business Insider quoted comapny as saying, “We apologize for this additional workshop visit and hope for your understanding."
Earlier this month, the company launched the ‘Maestro Edition’ of its flagship S-class, priced at ₹1.51 crore (ex-showroom, all India).
