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.

  • Hazard
    If 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 Action
    MBUSA 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.
