The two reported incidents of defects in the 2015 Mercedes Benz C Class were in Europe where steering coupling interlock on 2015 C Class models did not have correct locked positions. While there have been no complaints from customers in the US, the company is taking every precaution in advance and hence the recall.
With two incidents reported, wherein production workers have failed to install steering components on C300 and C400 models efficiently, Mercedes Benz has lost no time in recalling these models. Owners have been intimated and dealers have been instructed to rectify defects at no extra cost. All affected C Class vehicles were manufactured between January 17, 2014 and September 22, 2014.
2015 Mercedes Benz C Class was launched in the US earlier this August and comes into India on 25th November at an expected price of INR 30-35 lakhs. The new Mercedes C Class receives two variants C200 petrol and C220 CDI, of which only the former will be launched at first, and that too as a CBU.
Officially revealed today at India’s first ever CeBIT, 2015 C Class receives teardrop shaped headlights, slatted chrome grille, sporty bumpers and new fog lamps while its new alloy wheels adds to its classy appeal.
The new Mercedes C Class receives a 2.0 liter petrol and 2.2 liter diesel engine, both mated to a 7GTronic automatic gearbox. Once launched in India, the 2015 Mercedes C Class will compete with Audi A4, BMW 3 Series and Volvo S60 range.
