SEOUL, A group of South Korean customers have filed a class action lawsuit against Daimler AG and Daimler Trucks Korea due to faulty parts in trucks they bought from the German carmaker, industry sources said Tuesday.

Forty-eight owners of Daimler trucks have recently made a claim with a Seoul court for physical and financial damages due to parts problems, such as a malfunctioning braking system, airbags and steering wheel, which resulted in accidents in some cases, a person familiar with the matter told Yonhap News Agency.

A spokesman at the Seoul Central District Court was not immediately available for confirmation.

Daimler Trucks Korea said it is making efforts to resolve the problems through after-sales services and extension of its warranty period. It will fully cooperate if the authorities launch an investigation into the reported problems with its vehicles, the company said.
