Mercedes Recalls 680,000 E-Class and SL-Class Models to Examine Brake Control System

BERLIN May 11, 2004; The AP reported that DaimlerChrysler AG's Mercedes-Benz unit said Tuesday it is recalling some 680,000 E- and SL-class vehicles worldwide to examine potential problems with a brake control system.

Mercedes said it is asking owners of the vehicles to visit their local service centers for a precautionary check of the so-called Sensotronic Brake Control system.

The company said it was aware of a "very small number" of complaints, but that braking was assured by the system's additional hydraulic function.

The recall applies to E-class Limousines built after March 2002, T model cars built after March 2003 and SL-class vehicles made after October 2001, Mercedes said.

Spokesman Norbert Giesen said the recall affects about 680,000 vehicles worldwide, including 225,000 in Germany.
