Uh oh, looks like Mercedes-Benz is also not spared from the whole dieselgate saga. Daimler AG has issued a voluntary recall for over 3 million diesel cars in Europe for a software update. This will improve emissions for Euro5 and Euro6 class cars.
The recall involves vehicles sold between 2008 and 2016 and is expected to cost the company 220 million Euros (approximately RM1.08 billion). It will take roughly an hour for each car and will come at no cost to customers.
Dr. Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of the Board of Management of Daimler AG and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars said: “The public debate about diesel engines is creating uncertainty – especially for our customers. We have therefore decided on additional measures to reassure drivers of diesel cars and to strengthen confidence in diesel technology”.
