What are the defects?

The spark plugs in vehicles may not meet specification. As a result the spark plugs may fail during regular use.

What are the hazards?

If the spark plugs fail and parts enter the combustion chamber this could lead to engine damage. An engine stall may occur which would increase the risk of an accident and injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Consumers are asked to contact their most convenient Mercedes-Benz Retailer to arrange an appointment for replacement of the spark plugs.
