Daimler could face further diesel recalls, German report says

Daimler could face further recalls related to manipulated diesel engines in some of its Mercedes-Benz compact models, weekly magazine Der Spiegel said on Friday, without citing sources.

Germany’s transportation regulator KBA is currently investigating suspicious software used in some small diesel engines that Daimler bought from Renault, the report said.

German business paper Handelsblatt said the engines under suspicion were used in Mercedes A and B class models but not in Smart cars that share a Renault platform.
