Mercedes-Benz Might Be Selling Vehicles with Faulty HVAC Systems E-mail
May 23, 2017

The factory-installed heating, ventilating and air conditioning system (HVAC) in many Mercedes may accumulate mold and mildew, causing an unbearable moldy smell in the passenger cabin.  This may be caused by a defective evaporator, which removes the condensation that builds up in the HVAC system.  This problem allegedly persists even after the cabin air filter has been replaced and/or the HVAC system has been flushed.

The Mercedes vehicles that may have a defective HVAC system include:

2008-2016 Mercedes C-Class

2013-2016 Mercedes CLA-Class

2003-2009 Mercedes CLK-Class

2004-2016 Mercedes CLS-Class

2003-2016 Mercedes E-Class

2007-2016 Mercedes GL-Class

2010-2016 Mercedes GLK-Class

2006-2016 Mercedes M-Class

2006-2015 Mercedes R-Class

2006-2016 Mercedes S-Class

2003-2012 Mercedes SL-Class

2004-2010 Mercedes SLK-Class
