2018 MERCEDES-BENZ CLA250 - AIR BAGS: OCCUPANT CLASSIFICATION SYSTEM - OCS (FRONT PASSENGER)
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLA250, CLA250 4Matic, and CLA45 AMG 4Matic vehicles. The Occupant Classification System (OCS) may not be properly calibrated, resulting in the front passenger air bag not being deactivated if a child seat is in the front seat.
HazardIf a child seat is in the front seat and the passenger air bag is not deactivated, in the event of a crash, it can increase the risk of injury.
Consumer ActionMBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion, free of charge. An interim notification was mailed to owners October 2, 2018. A second notification will be sent when the repair is available. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
