    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Mercedes-Benz luxury vehicles company will recall nearly 668,954 cars from the Chinese market due to concerns over engine oil leaks, the state-run Xinhua news agency reported on Sunday, citing the State Administration for Market Regulation.

    According to the Chinese regulator, as cited by the media outlet, Mercedes cars of C-, E- and V-classes, will be recalled starting from 18 December.

    The possible oil leakage may be a result of the reduced sealability of the engine's high-pressure fuel pump and its low-pressure fuel pipe after long-term use, the regulator added.
