Mercedes-Benz GLK350 4MATIC Recalls
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 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.
