Daimler recalls Mercedes to fix steering glitch

FRANKFURT, Oct 11 – German luxury car maker Daimler will recall about 85,000 Mercedes Benz C and E-class autos in the United States to fix a problem with power steering systems, the US traffic authority NHTSA said on Monday.

A problem with the system\’s pump could lead to a loss of fluid and "owners may not have sufficient control of the vehicle in areas, such as parking lots, where maximum power steering is required, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash," the body said on its website

Mercedes planned to fix the problem in 2010 and 2011 models by re-tightening a faulty fitting free of charge, it added.

On October 1, rival BMW said it would recall 350,800 BMW and Rolls-Royce vehicles worldwide because of brake problems that a spokesman stressed were "without danger."
