H Mercedes-Benz Αμερικής ανακαλεί 130 οχήματα που κατασκευάστηκαν μεταξύ 16 Ιανουαρίου 2013 και 30 Απριλίου του ίδιου. Το πρόβλημα αφορά τις SL550, SL63 AMG και SL65 AMG και ουσιαστικά εντοπίζεται στους αισθητήρες των καθισμάτων που υπάρχει πιθανότητα αν κάθεται κάποιο πολύ ελαφρύ άτομο να μην ενεργοποιηθούν οι αερόσακοι, το οποίο αυξάνει τη πιθανότητα τραυματισμού των επιβατών.

Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.

Mercedes-Benz (Mercedes) is recalling certain model year 2013 SL63, SL550, and SL65 vehicles manufactured January 16, 2013, through April 30, 2013. The affected vehicles are equipped with an occupant classification system (OCS) that may not detect a very light person sitting in the front passenger seat.

If the OCS does not detect a very light person sitting in the seat, the passenger side air bag would be turned off. In the event of a crash necessitating side air bag deployment, the passenger would be at an increased risk of injury.

Mercedes will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger side seat cushion including the OCS. The recall is expected to begin in December 2013. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-201-573-0600.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.[/learn_more]
