Recalls

US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID: 13V236000
Mfg's Report Date: JUN 04, 2013
Component: AIR BAGS , ELECTRICAL SYSTEM
Potential Number Of Units Affected: 71


Summary:
Mercedes-Benz (Mercedes) is recalling certain model year 2013 SLK250 and SLK350 vehicles manufactured October 9, 2012, through November 20, 2012. These vehicles are equipped with an occupant classification system (OCS) that may not correctly differentiate between a child seat or a very light person being in the front passenger seat.

Consequence:
If the OCS incorrectly classifies a very light person as being a child seat, in the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, the system would deactivate the passenger airbag, increasing the risk of injury.

Remedy:
Mercedes will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger side seat cushion including the OCS. The recall is expected to begin during July 2013. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-201-573-0600.

Notes:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
