Mercedes-Benz issues recall of certain car models

Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain models of its cars because the power steering in the vehicles may fail due to the loss of power steering fluid.

Affected models are the 2010 C-Class model 204 and E-Class model 212, and 2010-11 E-Class Coupe/Cabriolet model 207.

A safety recall that begins this month will see dealers check and retorque a power steering connection, free of charge, to resolve the issue.

According to Associated Press, the recall is likely to effect 85,000 vehicles in the US and more than 22,000 in the UK.
