Mercedes issues a recall

Mercedes is recalling about 354-thousand cars and S-U-Vs in the U-S because a starter part can overheat and cause a fire.

The recall covers certain C-Class, E-Class and CLA cars and GLA and GLC SUVs, all from 2015 through 2017.

The German automaker says that if for some reason the engine and transmission won't turn over, a current limiter in the starter motor can overheat from repeated attempts to start the vehicles.

Dealers will install a fuse to correct the problem.
