BEIJING, April 18 (Xinhua) -- German carmaker Mercedes-Benz will recall 2,167 vehicles from the Chinese market due to safety concerns, according to the country's top quality regulator.
The recall, filed by Mercedes-Benz (China) Automotive Sales Co. and Beijing Benz Automotive Co., was set to begin on Aug. 30, the State Administration for Market Regulation said in a statement on its website.
It will involve 1,622 imported C-class, CLK-class, CLS-class and E-class models manufactured between Jan. 16, 2006 and Aug. 21, 2006, and 545 domestically-produced E-class cars made between Jan. 16, 2006 and Feb. 22, 2006.

The two auto companies will examine and repair the defective parts free of charge, according to the statement. Enditem
