Daimler ordered to recall 774000 cars

Germany discovers ?illegal? devices that may be in 1M Mercedes diesels - Autoblog

While Daimler, Mercedes-Benz's parent company, stridently denied any cheating, the KBA insisted it had found five unauthorised pieces of emissions-cheating software in 774,000 diesel engines across Europe.

While the KBA can only request the recall of cars within German borders, the transport ministry said: "The government will order 238,000 Daimler vehicles to be immediately recalled Germany wide because of unauthorized defeat devices".

The German government has ordered auto maker Daimler to recall 238,000 vehicles in Germany after they were found to be fitted with illegal software that masks diesel emissions. "An immediate formal recall because of prohibited shutoff devices" is required for the Mercedes-Benz GLC and C-Class models, which join the already recalled Vito van. A Daimler spokesperson told German language newspaper Bild am Sonntag, who first reported the story, that the automaker was "cooperating to a full extent and transparently with the KBA and the federal transport ministry".

Greece and Macedonia end 27-year feud over name
Macedonia became a candidate for membership of the European Union in 2005 but Greece blocked the start of negotiations. In Athens , conservative main opposition leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis urged Tsipras not to go ahead with the agreement.

It's now unclear how many models in the United Kingdom are impacted. Among the functions brought into question by the German Transport Ministry is the software used to regulate the amount of Ad Blue solution injected into the SCR filter that's fitted to the recalled vehicles.

The ordered recall follows Daimler's decision to voluntarily recall three million vehicles in the European Union previous year to perform software updates and improve emissions performance.

Since then, Daimler has pledged to remove the illegal software and co-operate with authorities.

House GOP in eleventh-hour attempt for immigration accord
For now, that progress seemed to buy GOP leaders more time before an immigration civil war erupts - at least until next week. Divided on immigration, House Republicans are huddling privately as leaders try pushing them toward consensus on the issue.

Zetsche or Daimler didn't say anything about what the company's software may be created to do, but it's the second large fix for the automaker in as many years.

The reports allege that two engines (OM 642 and OM 651) come with devices that shut down emissions controls under certain situations.

The Stuttgart-based carmaker has said the US Department of Justice has inquired about the company's emission certification processes, and that German prosecutors in Stuttgart are investigating Daimler employees on suspicion of fraud and criminal advertising.
