MONTVALE, New Jersey Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling more than 10,500 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class sedans in the U.S. because the steering wheels may squeak and resist turning, the automaker told Edmunds.

"In Europe, two instances were found in which the steering coupling interlock on 2015 C-Class models was not in the correct locked position," wrote Donna Boland, a company spokeswoman, in response to a query. "We have no reason to believe that models produced here in the U.S. would be affected but, in an abundance of caution, we want to be sure."

There are no accidents or injuries linked to the recall.

The 2015 C-Class debuted in the U.S. at the end of August.

The recall has started. Owners are advised to make an appointment with their Mercedes dealer to have the steering coupling interlock checked.

"It takes about 30 minutes and is free of cost," Boland said.

Owners can contact Mercedes-Benz customer support at 1-800-367-6372.

No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.
