Daimler said on Monday that it was recalling more than 100,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles in the United States and Britain because of a problem that could lead to a loss of power steering fluid.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a posting on its Web site Monday that the recall involved Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles from the 2010 model year and Mercedes-Benz E-Class vehicles from the 2010-11 model years. The recall involves vehicles produced between June 2009 and late February 2010.
About 85,000 vehicles are being recalled in the United States and more than 22,000 are being recalled in Britain, the automaker said. Daimler said it was a global recall but did not provide details on additional markets.
