Safety Recalls (4)

Electrical System > Software Oct 14, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Oct 14, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V724000
Summary:
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT Cabrio and AMG GT-C Cabrio vehicles. Due to a software incompatibility, in the event of a low speed crash, both stages of the frontal air bags may deploy instead of only the first-stage deploying as intended.
Consequence:
If the air bags do not deploy as intended, it can increase the risk of injury.
Remedy:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the air bag control unit software, free of charge. The recall began November 2, 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372. MBUSA's number for this recall is 2018100008.
Seat Belts Dec 17, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Dec 17, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V826000
Summary:
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, AMG GT R, AMG GT C and AMG GT S vehicles. The seat belts may bind within the guidance loops possibly causing slack in the seat belts.
Consequence:
If the seat belt binds, slack may develop through occupant movement which may lead to increased personal injury in the event of a crash.
Remedy:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will reconfigure the seat belt guides, free of charge. The recall began March 30, 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-877-496-3691. MBUSA'S number for this recall is 2017120018.
Air Bags > Frontal > Driver Side Inflator Module Mar 28, 2018
Report Receipt Date:
Mar 28, 2018
NHTSA Campaign:
18V208000
Summary:
Mercedes-Benz USA LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2018 AMG GT, AMG GT C, GLC43 AMG 4Matic, GLC300, GLC300 4Matic and GLC350e 4Matic vehicles. The housing for the driver side air bag inflator may have been made with defective steel. In the event of an air bag deployment, the defective steel may cause the inflator to improperly inflate the driver-side air bag and potentially rupture.
Consequence:
In the event of a crash involving driver air bag deployment, an improperly inflated air bag and/or an inflator rupture with sharp metal fragments might result in serious injury or death to the driver or to occupants.
Remedy:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front driver air bag module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 29, 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
Air Bags > Occupant Classification System - Ocs (front Passenger) Dec 17, 2017
Report Receipt Date:
Dec 17, 2017
NHTSA Campaign:
17V818000
Summary:
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2017 AMG GT & AMG GT-C Roadster and 2018 AMG GT-S & GT Roadster vehicles equipped with AMG Performance Seats. The passenger occupant classification system (OCS) might not function properly, possibly causing the passenger frontal air bag to be incorrectly deactivated or incorrectly activated in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
A passenger air bag that is incorrectly activated or deactivated in the event of a crash increases the risk of injury due to potential incorrect airbag deployment or non-deployment.
Remedy:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the OCS software, and if necessary, replace the passenger seat cushion, free of charge. Owners will be notified of the recall in January 2018 and they will receive a second letter when the parts become available, currently expected to be in February 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-877-496-3691.
