A huge number of Mercedes cars have recently been recalled across Europe due to problems with the performance of the emissions. 

The vehicles affected are diesel cars which have been purchased in the past six years. 

According to The Guardian, Daimler, the company who make the cars, has said that the recall won't come at the cost of the owner. 

The company is currently reported to be investing over €200 million in an attempt to reduce nitrogen oxide levels in the affected vehicles.

One million vehicles in Germany and two million more vehicles in the rest of Europe have been recalled thus far. 

The chairman of the board of management of Daimler, Dieter Zetsche, said:

"The public debate about diesel engines is creating uncertainty – especially for our customers. We have therefore decided on additional measures to reassure drivers of diesel cars and to strengthen confidence in diesel technology.
We are convinced that diesel engines will continue to be a fixed element of the drive-system mix, not least due to their low CO2 emissions.
