The Problem: The front passenger airbag may have been improperly sewn, allowing the seam to tear during deployment, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will replace the passenger airbag for free.
What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners Oct. 1. 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.
