Mercedes-Benz has urgently recalled more than 30,000 cars over fears the sunroof may fall out and cause a crash
The luxury car giant recalled the C, CLK, CLS, and E Class models manufactured between 2000 and 2010 after discovering the defect this week.
‘The durability of the bonding between the sunroof glass panel and the sliding roof frame on some vehicles might not meet specifications and the glass panel may separate from the vehicle,’ the recall said.
‘If the glass panel separates from the vehicle, there is a risk of an accident resulting in injury or death of other road users.’
The company said the 30,105 affected vehicles were sold nationally between January 3, 2000, and July 31 in 2010. They want the owners to contact their closest Mercedes-Benz retailer immediately.
‘Consumers are requested to contact their most convenient Mercedes-Benz retailer for a free of charge inspection of their sunroof, and repair, if required,’ the recall said.
