DaimlerChrysler AG reportedly is recalling 95% of Mercedes-Benz S-Class models sold in China due to potential problems with the vehicle’s fuel tank. No injuries have been reported related to the defect, which applies to 23,677 S-Class sedans manufactured between October 1998 and March 2005, a Reuters report says. The recall does not affect S-Class models sold in other parts of the world.
