Mercedes-Benz is recalling 10,063 examples of its C-Class due to the risk of a vehicle fire.

This fault is limited to the 2014-15 C200.

“The vehicle alternator may fail under specific operating and ambient conditions. If the vehicle alternator overheats it may cause a vehicle fire,” the company says in its recall notice.

“A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death of vehicle occupants and/or bystanders, as well as property damage.”

This model was first recalled in August 2021 with 3278 examples affected, but this recall has been expanded.

If you own an affected vehicle, Mercedes-Benz will contact you in order to schedule a free fix at your nearest/preferred Mercedes-Benz dealership.
