Up to 75,000 Mercedes to be Recalled Over Fire Risk

Up to 75,000 Mercedes C-Class, E-Class, CLA, GLA and GLC will be recalled because of a potential fire risk.

Mercedes owners will be notified later this month if their car is affected, and again when replacement parts are available – which is anticipated to be July. Dealers will take about an hour to fix the issue, and will install another fuse to prevent fires.

All work required will be free of charge.
