Widely regarded as the best luxury car maker, Mercedes-Benz has issued recall for its recently launched flagship model, the S-Class, soon after entering production. According to Business Insider, the luxury sedan is equipped with shorter inner tie rods, which could lead to serious steering problems. These rods are not reliable for proper driving, thus making the car comparatively more accident prone.

All the owners of the 2021 S-Class have been contacted by Mercedes Benz and have been suggested to consult an authorised dealer, where the service technicians can look into the inner tie rods, inspect them and replace the same, if necessary. These services will be provided without any additional cost.
