The AP (11/4) reports that Mercedes has issued a recall affecting more than 126,000 cars and SUVs in the US due to an issue that can cause its air bags to inflate without a crash. “The recall covers the C-300, C-350, and C-63 models from 2008 and 2009, and the GLK-350 4-Matic from 2010,” the article reports. In documents filed with the NHTSA Mercedes says no warning would be provided to the driver in the event of unintended deployment. Dealerships will replace defective units.
The story was also covered by the New York Times (11/4, Jensen, Subscription Publication, 11.64M).
