    What's the best source of info. on UK recalls?

    The CPS failed without warning on our 2007 V6 Vito today. A bit of Googling turned up this recall in Australia
    AustralianCar.Reviews: #1 for Reviews and Used Car Valuations

    The normal VOSA search here brings up this recall for M, C, CLK, E, CLS, S, R & G- classes with the OM642 ... but not the Vito or Viano :confused:

    Recall Details for MERCEDES BENZ - M, C, CLK, E, CLS, S, R & G- CLASSES.

    Is there anywhere else to search?

    Was the Viano classed as a commercial by M-B? I though they were sold through the car dealerships ... might be wrong though.

    We were incredibly lucky as Mrs BTB had been out and about all morning with 3 kids and 6 dogs in the van. She reversed into the drive, and just as she stopped in the normal place the engine died! Called out M-B Service 24H later on and they diagnosed the CPS - coming back tomorrow to fit a new one as they don't keep them in stock for the V6.
