Daimler is recalling more than 114,000 if its four-cylinder diesel-engine Mercedes-Benz vehicles in Germany over faulty seals.

The cars are being called back to repair seals that could cause oil leaks, according to Reuters. Repairs will take mechanics up to 2-1/2 hours to complete.

All of the affected vehicles were manufactured last year, between February and November 2014. Models made before and after that date are not included in the recall

Daimler confirmed that necessary repairs will be completed by company dealerships free of charge to the owner.

The automaker doesn't currently have the exact figures for the number of how many vehicles worldwide were affected by the recall, according to Reuters.

MBUSA will notify all owners of the recall.

The vehicles were manufactured from October 8, 2014, to October 24, 2014.
