Oh, No, Vaneo!: Mercedes Recalls 50,000 A-Class Cars

Run, DmC and tell Mercedes customers some of their windshield wipers be wack (yikes, the NyQuil hangover is raging full on). The company announced today it was recalling 50,000 Vaneo and A-Class cars — mainly in the German market — built between 2002 and 2003 because of a possible windshield-wiper problem. (Both cars are built on the A-Class platform, though the Vaneo rides on a stretched chassis.) Earlier in 2005, Mercedes recalled 1.3 million vehicles in several model ranges to fix problems with their alternators and batteries.
