Mercedes recalls vehicles over leaky fuel filters

WASHINGTON (AP) - November 5, 2010

The recall covers certain diesel versions of the 2011 E Class sedan and 2011 GL Class, M Class and R Class SUVs and crossover vehicles.

The automaker says a lack of lubrication in the diesel engine fuel filters could cause the filter to leak.

Diesel fuel could be leaked onto the road, causing slippery conditions and a potential crash.

Owners will be notified later this month.
