Vehicles Affected: Approximately 4,700 model-year 2016-18 Mercedes-Benz GLC300 and GLC300 4Matic SUVs; model-year 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC350e and Mercedes-AMG GLC63 4Matic SUVs; and model-year 2017-18 Mercedes-AMG GLC43 4Matic SUVs
The Problem: The seat belt latch plates for the outboard rear seats may retract into the interior paneling, preventing the occupants from being able to use the seat belts, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will install felt strips between the C-pillar and rear side paneling for free.
What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners Oct. 31. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
