Mercedes-benz Recalls 750,000 Cars Over Defective Panoramic Sunroof by Cargist44: 9:12am On Jan 07, 2020
Mercedes-Benz is recalling about 750,000 cars over defective panoramic sunroofs.

The German automaker disclosed that the sunroofs of the affected models could possibly separate from their frames and fly off while driving, thereby causing road accidents.

The cars affected by the defect are Mercedes-Benz sedans produced from 2001-2011.

They include:

2001-2007 Mercedes-Benz C-class
2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz CLK-class
2007-2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS-class
2003-2009 Mercedes-Benz E-class

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said that the glue used to hold glass panels to the sliding frame can deteriorate chemically resulting in the sunroof pulling off.

Naijauto learned Mercedes received multiple complaints from customers of their sunroof detaching from the frame and began investigations into the issue in December 2017.

Mercedes Benz will contact customers whose vehicles were affected on or after February 14, 2020, for inspection of the sunroof and replacement, free of charge.
