Merc and Daihatsu recalls

MERCEDES-Benz is recalling all 3,800 M-class models to check for a possible fault on the front seat belts which could result in the belt slipping out of the buckle. The problem was discovered during an internal quality audit and owners are being contacted to arrange for the vehicle to be checked at a local dealership.

If there is a problem the seat belt buckle will be replaced free of charge in less than an hour. Meanwhile, Daihatsu is recalling 3,113 1.2-litre diesel-engined Hijet vans and pick-ups supplied between October 1995 and January 1998 to repair a possible fault in the fuel rail injection system.
