Vehicles Affected: Nearly 11,000 model-year 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans.
The Problem: A production error involving the “steering couple interlock” causes steering wheels to squeak and resist turning, according to The Detroit News. The problem was first noticed in September in two vehicles in Europe. Models in the U.S. are manufactured in Tuscaloosa, Ala., and a spokeswoman for the automaker said “there’s no reason to think our vehicles have this problem,” the newspaper reported.
The Fix: Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will make the necessary repairs for free. The automaker has not yet announced a notification schedule.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Mercedes-Benz at 800-367-6372 for more info.
