Daimler will continue to recall diesel cars

Daimler may face further recalls related to faulty diesel engines in some of its compact Mercedes-Benz models.

German transport regulator KBA is currently investigating suspicious software used in some of the smaller diesel engines that Daimler bought from Renault, the report said. German business newspaper Handelsblatt says suspicious engines were used on Mercedes A and B class models, but not on Smart cars that use the Renault platform.

Renault denies that the engines were faulty, and reports that the unit control software that was transferred to Daimler was programmed by Mercedes engineers. In September, German prosecutors fined Daimler nearly $ 1 billion for using illegal diesel manipulation techniques.
