Mercedes-Benz is recalling three-quarters of a million cars due to the potential for glass sunroofs to detach. There’s a potential for this to happen while the vehicle is moving, ultimately causing road hazards for other drivers. Specifically, the bonding that keeps the sunroof glass attached to the roof of the vehicle may fail and cause the roof to detach from the car.
Specific vehicles that are part of the recall include:
- Certain 2001-2007 C-Class sedans, coupes and wagons
- Certain 2003-2009 CLK-Class coupes
- Certain 2003-2009 E-Class wagons and sedans
- Certain 2006-2011 CLS-Class sedans
How Mercedes-Benz Is Remedying the Problem
If your vehicle is part of the recall, you can contact Mercedes-Benz customer service directly at 1-800-367-6372. You can also visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website and enter your vehicle’s VIN to see if your vehicle is part of any open recalls. It’s important to note that there are C-Class, CLK-Class, CLS-Class and E-Class vehicles of the 1999-2010 model years that aren’t on the aforementioned list that are subject to this recall if their sunroof was repaired between 100`and 2011.
Mercedes-Benz isn’t currently aware of any injuries or damage due to the faulty sunroofs.
