Mercedes-Benz Recall Extended, Malaysia How?
Since March this year, Mercedes-Benz has offered its customers of compact-class cars an improvement in NOx emissions for one engine version. Approximately 45% of those cars have already been updated. A voluntary service action is also being carried out for the V-Class luxury MPV customers, so far with approximately 75% of the vehicles in Germany.
In order to effectively improve the emissions of additional model series, Daimler has now decided to extend the service action to include over three million Mercedes-Benz vehicles. For this purpose, the company’s engineers are making use of latest knowledge gained during the development of the new family of diesel engines.
The measures to be taken for nearly all EU5 and EU6 vehicles in Europe will be carried out in close cooperation with the German regulatory authorities. The company is investing about 220 million euros. The service actions involve no costs for the customers.
The implementation of the measures will be starting in the next weeks. Due to the large number of vehicles this will continue over a longer period of time.
In this way, Daimler is making a significant contribution to the reduction of nitrogen-oxide emissions from diesel vehicles in European inner cities. The question we have is this…..does this recall involve any Mercedes-Benz diesel vehicles sold in Malaysia?
