Mercedes-Benz Australia/Pacific Pty Ltd — Mercedes-Benz CLA and B Class MY2016-2017

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See attached VIN list

What are the defects?

In the front passenger seat, an installed child seat may be identified as a person, or a lightweight person may be identified as a child seat.

What are the hazards?

If the front passenger seat occupant is misidentified:

  • The front passenger airbag may not deploy as intended, despite the presence of a person in the front passenger seat.
  • The front passenger airbag may deploy, despite a child seat being installed.

In both cases, there is an increased risk of  injury or death to the person sitting in that seat in the event of an accident.

What should consumers do?

Consumers are asked to contact their most convenient Mercedes-Benz retailer for a free repair.
