Luxury automaker Mercedes-Benz is recalling about 85,000 vehicles from certain 2010 and 2011 models due to potential steering problems.
The recall affects 2010 C-Class cars as well as the 2010 and 2011 E-Class coupe and cabriolet models.
Steering systems in the cars "may fail due to the loss of power steering fluid," the automaker said in a statement.
In such instances, the driver could lose control of the vehicle, according to the automaker.
Those affected can take the cars to a Mercedes dealership for a free checkup. The recall starts later in October.
lease a 2008 C-300 benz.On july 2nd this yr,right next to my driveway my car went out on a tangent and hit a parked vehicle.I had complained 6 times when I leased in 2008 and they fixed and after a servicing two days prior to me accident they forgot to fix the problem I feel.I slammed my rt Tibia due to the impact "at such a Slow" speed.I had no control on the steering wheel the way it happened.I happen to be travelling in Turkey and they a plant there.I have complained many times.So watch out for the previous years cars.Thank God I can get rid of my car in May of 2011.
If you run out of power steering fluid, it's just going to be harder to steer, just like the old days.
ABOUT TIME THAT MERCEDES HAD A PUBLICIZED RECALL. NO REASON THEY SHOULDN'T JOIN THE PARTY...
I am glad I bought a real beauty 2011 BMW 535.....
Big deal, all automakers have recalls. They are leaking power steering fluid. If you don't notice it leaking your a fool, hope it's oil and locks up the engine. I can use the extra work. good day.

This is nothing. Mercedes is yet to do thye largest recall in history, ober $3 billion dollars for a gross engineering error in their wire harnesses which causes sudden aceleration, engine fires, stalls on highways, etc. Over 2000 complaints have been filed with the NHTSA which is still to act due to political pressure from congressmen depending on Mercedes' campaign financing dollars. See http://www.MercedesDefects.com . THIS IS REAL AND PRESENT.
That site is BS. The most obvious reason is the PDF letter attached. Have you ever scanned a letter recieved by mail? There are visible folds in the paper. Take a close look and tell me if that is a real letter.
Dam mercedes! first rolls now them.. who next?
Five bucks says, American automobile sales have tanked. These Ray LaHood thugs have went after Toyota, Hyundai and now Mercedes in the last several weeks.
I don't recall this ever happening before.
I recall the chevy corsair and vega, ford pinto. real pcs. of crap. weren't every single one of them recalled.
