Mercedes M-Class SUV Recall
Honda Recalls Element To Fix Trailer HarnessMay 23, 2005 | www.consumeraffairs.com
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said DaimlerChrysler AG is recalling 7,191 of its 2006 model-year Mercedes M-class sport-utility vehicles because a clamp that secures the power steering fluid cooling hose may be defective and could cause a loss of the fluid.
This could diminish power steering and lead to a crash, the NHTSA said.
In another safety action, Honda Motor Co. Ltd. is recalling 14,967 2005 model-year Element wagons because the trailer harness kit has an incorrectly wired connector.
"As a result, the trailer brake lamps and turn signal lamps could operate incorrectly, or a fuse could blow causing a sudden loss of brake and turn signal lamp function," the NHTSA said.
