Recall roundup: New Mercedes-Benz B-Class in Germany image

The German based automaker Mercedes-Benz has recently announced a recall for the second B-Class generation on its local auto market.

According to the car manufacturer, the Mercedes-Benz B-Class will have to be taken back to the dealers, for several versions, because of a problem with its rear seats, which can fold in a crash. If this happens, the risk injury increases. A total of 2,524 units will be affected by this recall across Germany. The Mercedes-Benz B-Class W246 which will have to be taken back to the dealers has been produced between January 14, 2012, and May 18, 2012. Daimler didn’t say anything about other vehicles sold in other markets outside Germany.

Additional details on the recall remain unknown for the moment, but if you own a Mercedes-Benz B-Class from the 2013 model year, you should probably contact your local Mercedes dealership. As a quick reminder, the second generation of the Mercedes-Benz B-Class has been in production since 2011. The model is assembled in Rastatt, Germany, and in Kecskemet, Hungary, and it’s coming in a five-door body style version. The B-Class is getting two engines and two transmissions and it’s 4,359 mm long, 1,786 mm wide and 1,557 mm tall, with a 2,700 mm long wheelbase.
