Mercedes-Benz has announced a recall on approximately 2,200 model-year 2019-20 A220 sedans, model-year 2020 CLA250 coupes, and model-year 2020 GLC300 SUVs due to airbag issues. The driver-side front airbag modules may not have been correctly bolted down, which may cause improper deployment of the airbag in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners Nov. 26. Owners can call the automaker at 800-367-6372 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the driver-side airbag module and replace it, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
