In a crash that deploys vehicle air bags to protect occupants, the passenger seat air bag may not deploy, increasing risk of injury. Dealers will replace the passenger seat air bag free of charge to resolve the problem.
Mercedes-Benz SLK250 Recalls
The passenger seat cushion contains a sensing device (occupant classification system, or OCS) to determine if a child safety seat is in use on that seat. The system is designed to turn off the passenger airbag when the system senses a child safety seat in use. These vehicles are being recalled because the system may not correctly classify a very light weight person and incorrectly disable the passenger airbag. This would increase the risk of personal injury in the event of a crash. Dealers will replace the passenger seat cushion, including the OCS to correct this concern.
