It could be just 1,700 cars

FRANKFURT — Daimler is recalling some new Mercedes-Benz EQC electric cars
because of a potentially defective bolt in the differential, the company
said on Tuesday.

"Daimler AG has determined that on certain EQC vehicles the bolt in the
front axle differential transmission might not meet durability
specifications. Thus, it cannot be ruled out, that the bolt breaks over
lifetime," the carmaker said.

The fault could interrupt torque transmission to the front axle, leading to
a vehicle stall. Additionally, if parts of the broken bolt become lodged
within the differential transmission, this might affect the ability to

German industry publication kfz betrieb, which initially reported details of
the recall, said 1,700 vehicles were targeted. Daimler declined to comment
on the number of vehicles affected.
