Mercedes Under Fire for Claims of Diesel Engine Defects
Daimler, the parent company for Mercedes-Benz, has launched an internal investigation into MB’s BlueTEC diesel engines after a class-action lawsuit was filed against the carmaker.
Mercedes-Benz seems pretty clear that it won’t be using diesel technology in at least one aspect of its business: the high-performance AMG models.
YouTube personality Shmee150 has an excellent video column where he tours bespoke performance tuning companies and then samples the goods. Lucky for us, Shmee hits up Brabus this time around.
Some Mercedes diesel owners are now claiming Mercedes has installed a cheat device similar to the one that has Volkswagen wrapped up in scandal and lawsuits. So far, all of the claims are unfounded, and Daimler has fully cooperated with the EPA in terms of handing over information.
