Multiple news sources have been reporting that Mercedes-Benz has recently reported in its website that multiple vehicles manufactured by Mercedes-Benz are being recalled.
The 2013 SLK250 and SLK350 were equipped with front passenger seat occupant classification systems that might fail. A child or a smaller and lighter adult might not be protected because the system could fail to recognize the person’s presence, increasing the risk of a potential injury since the system may fail to activate the airbag system in the event of an accident.
The company has stated that this recall is being issued in order to prevent a potential serious injury. Affected vehicle owners will have the OCS feature in their cars’ passenger seats fully replaced in order to promote safety and keep passengers protected in the case of an accident.
