Vehicles Affected: Approximately 10,800 model-year 2017-18 Mercedes-Benz C300 and C300 4Matic cabriolets; and Mercedes-AMG C43 cabriolets, C63 cabriolets and C63S cabriolets
The Problem: Due to a bonding issue introduced in the production process, the rear beltline trim may separate from the vehicle, which could become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will inspect the rear beltline trim and replace the trim if necessary for free.
What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners on Sept. 9. 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.
