Recall Alert: 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class


Mercedes-Benz is recalling 41 2011 E-Class sedans and wagons over insufficient adhesive in the vibration damper in the engine compartment, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, which were built between July 8 and July 12, 2010, insufficient adhesion could cause the vibration damper and its inner mass damper ring to separate. As a result, the kinetic energy from the separated mass damper ring could injure anyone who is repairing the vehicle or anyone else nearby. You can find the build date of your car by looking at a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb.

The recall is expected to begin this month. Dealers will inspect and replace any parts if necessary at no charge. Owners can call Mercedes at 800-367-6372 or NHTSA’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236.



Didn't know Mercedes still made the E wagaon

A hand car wash may offer a more thorough job than automated car washes but sadly they too suffer similar disadvantages. Manual car washes, like automatic ones are not always designed to safely clean your car and achieve the best quality results.
