Mercedes recall over steering problems

Mercedes is to recall more than 22,000 cars because of potential power steering problems.

The recall affects C and E-class cars made between June last year and February this year.

Mercedes Benz spokesman Rob Halloway said the move, in which 22,355 vehicles were to be recalled, was "precautionary".

He said the problem related to a bolt in the power steering pump which, if loose, could cause sluggish or heavy steering.

"We are checking every single car and writing to all affected owners inviting them to bring their vehicles in to their local dealer," he said.

"This is purely a precautionary matter and we are not aware of any incidents or accidents as a result of the problem."

The repair work would take no longer than 30 minutes, he added.
