"There is simply the worm in it" - Mercedes has recall problems with its "miracle engine"

In 2008, the four-cylinder OM 651 diesel was praised by its creators as a "miracle engine" that even made it into the S-Class in 2010. With the four-cylinder, Mercedes Development Board member Thomas Weber wanted to prove that the large luxury sedan from Mercedes-Benz can also be operated spiritedly and economically.
