FRANKFURT, Germany - DaimlerChrysler AG said Thursday (March 31, 2005) it is recalling some 1.3 million Mercedes-Benz models worldwide to fix a problem with alternators and batteries.

In a statement, the German-U.S. auto maker said the models in years from 2001 to 2004 and include current E-, SL- and CLS-class models that have been built since 2001.

The Stuttgart-based company said that models with six-and eight-cylinder engines need to have the voltage regulator examined and, if needed, replaced.

On the E-class and CLS-class models, built from January 2002-January 2005, battery control software will be installed. The company also said the braking system on the E, SL and CLS-class made since June 2001 would be updated.

The company has set up a hot line for European customers at +800-1-777-7777.


I don't have any other information...maybe some of you can add to this. [B)]

just call your local MB dealer talk to your Service ad. give them your VIN and they will tell you if your car has a recall.

You can add the G Klasse to the recall list, as well.
