Mercedes Benz has recalled 126,000 vehicles in the United States after an airbag defect was reported to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The defect could cause the airbags to either not deploy in a crash or to deploy without the vehicle being in a crash. The defect was brought to the automaker’s attention after reports were made of numerous vehicles in Europe experiencing random airbag deployment last year.
While the problem was fixed in Europe, reports of the same problem surfaced in the United States leading to a recall of the models C-300, C-350 and C-63, which were manufactured from 2008 to 2009, as well as the 2010 GLK 4-matic. Mercedes has not announced when the recall is set to officially begin, but has reported that no injuries have occurred due to the defect.
