Mercedes-Benz has recalled more than 10,500 Alabama-made C-Class vehicles from the 2015 model year in the U.S. due to a potential steering problem. The German automaker said a production error could cause steering wheels to squeak and resist turning. The problem was said to affect two European models. The automaker said there’s “no reason to think our vehicles have this problem.” Mercedes manufactures the C-Class, which was redesigned for 2015, at four factories around the world, in Germany, South Africa, China and Alabama. Those produced at the Tuscaloosa County plant are for the U.S. market. The company also is recalling 28,500 C-Class models in Germany. Customers are being advised to take their vehicles to dealers to check out the steering.
