  • Mercedes-Benz to recall C-Class & GLK class models!

Mercedes will be recalling more than 126K vehicles in the US due to airbag deployment fault.

Mercedes-Benz recently announced a recall of its C-Class and GLK class models. More than 126,260 vehicles will be recalled by Mercedes from the US. The recall was issued due to defaults in the airbag deployment system of the cars.

The fault in the Mercedes vehicle airbags can lead to sudden deployment. The airbags have also been found to fail to deploy in case of a crash. The recalled vehicles include the 2008-2009 C-Class.

The C-Class models include the C300, C300 4Matic, C350, and C63 AMG. The recall also encompasses the 2010 GLK350 and GLK350 4Matic.

The airbag is faulty due to a possible corrosion or manufacturing error. The NHTSA revealed the airbags in Mercedes vehicles deployed three times unexpectedly in the US. The details were revealed by the NHTSA in a pdf file earlier.

The Mercedes-Benz USA spokesperson is Donna Boland. Boland reassured there have been no fatalities or injuries related to the airbag default in Mercedes vehicles. Mercedes dealers will inspect and fix the problem as part of the recall.

If necessary the faulty parts will be replaced by the authorised dealers. All the services by the dealers will be free of charge. Owners of the effected vehicles will be notified by Mercedes-Benz. Owners may also contact the NHTSA for further details on their cars.
