The official representative of Mercedes-Benz in Russia-JSC "Mercedes-Benz Rus" - recalls 1,019 cars of the S-Class series (W222) and S-Class coupe/convertible (W217). We are talking about vehicles manufactured in the period from 2017 to 2019, Rosstandart said in a statement.

Authorized representatives of manufacturers of JSC "Mercedes-Benz Rus" will inform the owners of cars subject to the recall by sending letters and/or by phone about the need to provide the vehicle to the nearest dealership for repair work.
