Another Daimler Diesel Emissions Recall

Daimler’s diesel emissions woes continue with the news that, as previously announced, the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) Daimler will conduct a mandatory recall for Mercedes-Benz vehicles with diesel engines in Europe. Approximately 670,000 vehicles are part of the recall in Europe.

Daimler said the majority of vehicles were already part of the voluntary service action announced in summer 2017 for more than three million diesel vehicles in Europe, which is continuing unchanged.

The recall ordered by KBA in 2018 applies solely to vehicles having Euro 6b emissions certification. Daimler said the recall will mainly affect the following models: Vito 1.6-liter diesel (OM 622), C-Class 1.6-liter diesel (OM 626), ML/GLE/GL/GLS 3.0-liter diesel (OM 642), V-Class 2.2-liter diesel (OM 651) and GLC 2.2-liter diesel (OM 651). Some other individual models are also affected by the recall.
