In cooperation with Zawawi Trading Co.: PACP launches a recall campaign for Mercedes-Benz SLK and SLC cars    

10/09/2017

PACP, in cooperation with Zawawi Trading Co., started a recall campaign for 15 Mercedes-Benz cars models SLK and SLC 2016 - 2018. The campaign starts 10 September 2017. 8 SLK200s were recalled based on VINs  WDD1724341F114921 - WDD1724341F130083, 5 SLK300s will be recalled based on VINs WDD1724381F115659 - WDD1724381F137392, in addition to 2 SLC43s with VINs WDD1724661F126581 and WDD1724661F129434 will be recalled as well.

 

The reason behind the recall is a defect in The vehicle's electronic stability control (ESC) system software may incorrectly keep the brakes slightly applied when the driver activates the automatic brakes and then releases it, the slight remaining pressure will be stuck in the hydraulic braking system, which will keep the brakes  slightly applied and might possibly heat up while driving, this can occur in a very short span of time (Less than 100 milliseconds) after applying automatic pressure on the brakes by the driver’s assist system. If the driver steps on the brakes after that, the required brake pressure can be achieved and released in full after lifting the foot off the brake pedal which may release the stuck pressure. The dealer will update the software for the ESC system in the effected cars.
These recalls confirm PACP efforts in traffic safety and constant care to conduct continuous reviews of all the available products in the markets of Oman in order to provide the necessary protection for the consumers in all areas.
