UK: Mercedes to recall 4,00000 cars with faulty airbags


Daimler AG is recalling more than 1 million Mercedes-Benz cars and sport utility vehicles worldwide to address potential unintended air bag deployments, the German automaker said on Monday.

Mercedes said it was recalling models - the A, B, C, and E-Class as well as the CLA, GLA, and GLC - built between November 2011 and July 2017.

Do you own an affected vehicle?

The Associated Press reports via the German dpa news agency that 400,000 of the affected vehicles are registered in Britain, another some-hundred thousand in Germany as figures on other countries are expected to follow. Nobody has died as a result.

Mercedes said the driver airbag warning light and red airbag warning lamp could be displayed by error.

Sistani, ticking off the central probe agency, said, "There was complete lack of interest" in pursuing the case. They were protesting against the agency's failure to trace Najeeb.

While no casualties were reported on account of the fault that was detected, Mercedes said the clock spring model in the steering column will be replaced, as failing to do so could break it, causing the airbag to deploy at the wrong time.

The German auto maker said: 'Cars are safe to drive under normal operating conditions'.

Mercedes-Benz said its cars were safe to drive under normal operating conditions but urged customers to contact its roadside assistance service if the air bag warning light comes on.

The fix for the problem takes an hour and will be performed at no cost to customers.
