2017-2021 Mercedes-Benz Vehicle Fires
Lieff Cabraser is investigating reports that a technical defect in some 800,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles could cause the cars to spontaneously catch fire. The automaker has yet to issue a formal recall, however, because it purportedly lacks the parts to fix the defect at present. Instead, Mercedes warned affected drivers to drive “particularly carefully” and limit subject vehicle usage to a “bare minimum.”
In a letter to drivers, Mercedes noted that the defect was traced to a possible coolant pump leak. Affected vehicles include Mercedes’ GLE/GLS, C-Class, E-Class, S-Class, S-Class, E-Class Coupe/Convertible, GLC, CLS and G-Class automobiles produced between January 2017 and October 2021.
