Vehicles Affected: Approximately 60 model-year 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLC300, GLC300 4Matic and GLC350e 4Matic SUVs, and model-year 2018 Mercedes-AMG GT and GT C sports cars and GLC43 4Matic SUVs

The Problem: The housing for the driver-side airbag inflator may have been made with defective steel. In the event of an airbag deployment, the defective steel may cause the inflator to improperly inflate the driver-side airbag and potentially rupture, which may result in serious injury or death in the event of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the front driver-side airbag module for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners May 29. 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 NHTSA’s website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
