Daimler invests $25 millions in Mercedes cars with Illegal software

Daimler’s management board just approved some measures to cut diesel pollution including an investment of 22o million euros to update more than 3 million Mercedes-Benz diesel cars in Europe. German regulators might have been the main reason why the company has taken these serious steps, since they have blamed it for causing respiratory disease.

 


 

The plan extends a service action that began in March on compact cars and also included V-class vans. Germany’s Transport Ministry declined immediately to comment on the recall. Daimler executives last week were summoned to attend a meeting with government officials in Berlin to explain the automaker’s role in possible diesel-emissions cheating after two engines used in Mercedes vehicles drew increased scrutiny from prosecutors. The recall marks a change of approach after the company vowed to fight accusations of cheating by “all legal means.”

 

 

Mercedes is one of a number of auto manufacturers targeted in a technology scandal that’s enveloped the industry since Volkswagen AG admitted in September 2015 that it installed software to bypass pollution rules. Hundreds of police officers and prosecutors participated in searches at Daimler sites throughout Germany in May as part of a probe opened earlier this year.

 

 

The measures will see almost all of Daimler’s diesel cars in Europe with the Euro-5 and -6 emissions standards receive an upgrade. Daimler further said it would roll out its new four-cylinder OM 654 diesel engine, first launched in the new E class in 2016, across its entire model portfolio.

  • Fire Risk: BMW Recalls 185,000 Cars TODAY
    19 Apr 2019

    The recall expansion covers 3 Series, 5 Series and Z4 models from the 2006 model year. The problem has been traced to irregularities in the manufacturing process that could allow moisture to occur near the PCV valve heater and lead to a short circuit. The PCV valve is an emissions device that keeps pollutants created by an engine from being released into the atmosphere. It also helps keep the engine oil clean and prevents crankcase pressure from building up. BMW warns its customers to stop driving the vehicle if there is smoke coming from the engine, or if the driver smells smoke or plast...
