Carmaker Mercedes-Benz has announced recall of more than 147,000 station wagons and mid-size sedans manufactured between 2013 and 2015.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on Saturday said that the move to recall the vehicles is taken in order to check for possible engine fires risk.
According to the US safety regulator, the recalled vehicle models possess a rubber seal which is present in the engine compartment that can possibly fall onto the exhaust system that would increase the risk of an under-hood fire.
The automobile company said that among the cars that would be recalled this time include versions of the E-class sedan, CLS-class sedan and wagon.
Mercedes said that the American dealers will commence notifying the owners and carrying the repairing work of the cars in mid-March.
Last week, the automobile company had recalled another 149,000 E-class and CLS-class cars in China and Europe for a similar technical issue.
