• Mercedes issues recall over starter issues, fire risk


    DETROIT (AP) - Mercedes is recalling about 354,000 cars and SUVs in the U.S. because a starter part can overheat and cause a fire.

    The recall covers certain C-Class, E-Class and CLA cars and GLA and GLC SUVs, all from 2015 through 2017.

    The German automaker says that if for some reason the engine and transmission won't turn over, a current limiter in the starter motor can overheat from repeated attempts to start the vehicles.

    Dealers will install a fuse to correct the problem.
