January 24, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Daimler AG's Mercedes-Benz unit is recalling about 9,000 2007-model-year diesel-engine cars because of a possible problem with the crankshaft sensor.On its Web site, the NHTSA said the affected vehicles "may lose power rather than enter a limp-home mode. In addition, the vehicles cannot be restarted after failure of the electrical connection in the sensor, increasing the risk of a crash."The recall is expected to begin in February.
