Sunroofs may detach and fly off of moving vehicles.
Monday, February 10, 2020 – Luxury car maker Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall on nearly 750,000 vehicles manufactured between 2001 and 2011 after it was discovered that faulty bonding can cause glass from their sunroofs to detach. The recall includes C-Class, CLK-Class, E-Class, and CLS-Class wagons, coupes, and sedans.

Some vehicles that are not on the list, including those manufactured between 1999 and 2010, are also subject to the recall if their sunroofs underwent repair or replacement between 2001 and 2011.
Mercedes-Benz says it is not aware of injuries, damage, or deaths caused by the problem. However, should sunroof glass become detached while the vehicle is moving, it could pose a significant danger to motorists and pedestrians.
