Mercedes-Benz C300 Recalls
The Electronic Stability Control system may not operate, which could allow the vehicle to lose control in adverse driving conditions. This could result in an accident. Additionally, the electronic parking brake may not function.
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The panoramic glass sunroof assembly may separate from the vehicle, increasing risk of injury or an accident.
The inflator that deploys the driver's frontal air bag in the event of an accident may rupture and spray metal fragments onto vehicle occupants. This can increase risk of serious injury or death.
The air bag system that protects occupants in a crash may malfunction, causing unintended air bag deployment, or lack of proper deployment in an accident. This causes a serious safety hazard.
The headlights may be accidentally aimed improperly because adjustment mechanisms are inadvertently exposed and able to be changed when they should not be. This could cause the lights to distract other drivers, or cause a lack of visibility, both resulting in risk of an accident.
The tail lights of the vehicle may dim or fail due to a poor electrical connection.
A fuel leak can develop due to an error in the manufacturing process of the fuel filter.
The rear outboard seat belts may not latch correctly when used with certain child safety seats, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.
