The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently issued a bulletin citing that fuel filters on certain Mercedes-Benz models that could leak at the O-ring seals due to improper lubrication of said seals.

Although the NHTSA bulletin specifically focused on diesel-engined models, M-B extended the recall to cover gas engined vehicles as well. As it stands, the recall affects some 2,300 vehicles in total including 2011 E-Class passenger cars as well as the GL (shown); M and R-Class SUVs/Crossovers. Mercedes-Benz said that the defective fuel filters will be replaced free of charge by authorized dealers, beginning this month.
