C Class W205 C180 Estate Problems, Faults and Recalls

  • R/2014/113 - Steering Control May Be Affected - It is possible that the steering column coupling lock may not have been installed correctly. The driver will recieve warning of the issue by noise. However in extreme circumstances it is possible that steering control of the vehicle could be affected.
  • R/2014/182 - Oil May Leak - On certain diesel engines the 'O' ring may not have been produced to the correct specification. This may allow oil to leak and contaminate the environment. If excessive oil is lost engine damage may occur.
  • R/2015/083 - Vehicle May Shut Down - Due to a software code error it is possible that the 1.6ltr 4 cylinder diesel engines may suffer a stalling situation during the warm-up phase and where the engine is subjected to high load requirements. However if the engine does stall it can be immediately restarted and the vehicle can be driven without restrictions. Furthermore all safety systems remain fully functional.
  • R/2015/081 - Engine May Stall - It is possible on certain petrol (gasoline) vehicles that the mounting hooks for the jet pump may not have been manufactured to specification. The jet pump is mounted on top of the fuel delivery module in the fuel tank and if the mounting hooks were to fail it will result in the jet pump detaching from the module and a possible fall in fuel pressure. This fall in fuel pressure could either result in the engine not starting or in worst cases causing the engine to cut out or stall. This could affect the drivers ability to control the vehicle.
  • R/2015/121 - Side Restraint System May Not Function As Intended - The threaded connection of the crash sensors at the B-pillars may not be to specification. There is a possibility that the side restraint system may trigger too late or not at all in the event of a side impact which may pose an increased risk of injury for the vehicle occupants.
  • R/2015/120 - Passenger Airbag May Not Function As Intended - On affected vehicles a control unit under the front passenger seat may not have been correctly installed. This may adversely affect the seat occupancy recognition system.The seat occupancy recognition system may not correctly identify seat occupancy and may incorrectly activate or deactivate the air bag. Activation status will be notified by the passenger air bag warning system.
  • R/2015/149 - Front Seats May Not Be Secured Acording To Specification - The threaded connections to the rear of the front seats may not have been tightened correctly. In the case of a serious vehicle accident the seat connection may not function as designed resulting in an elevated risk of injury to the occupants.
  • R/2015/210 - Engine May Fail - The camshaft could break and damage the engine due to it not being manufactured to the correct specification. If the condition occurs it will lead to a sudden loss of drive thereby increasing the risk of a collision.
  • R/2015/259 - Risk Of Fire - The high pressure fuel lines have not been manufactured to the correct specification which over time can lead to crack formation and fuel leaking. Fuel escaping in the presence of an ignition source could lead to fire.
  • R/2016/032 - Risk Of Fire - The threaded connection of the battery ground may not be tightened correctly due to deviation in the tightening angle monitoring. In the event of a poor ground of the battery line a temporarily higher transition resistance could lead to the formation of sparks and local heating. This would increase the risk of fire.
