Recall Alert: 2011 Mercedes-Benz G-Class


(Cars.com)

Mercedes-Benz is recalling 189 model-year 2011 versions of the G550 and G55 AMG SUVs due to problems with the front passenger airbag, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The affected vehicles were manufactured from Sept. 20, 2010, through April 27, 2011 (check your vehicle’s build date on a sticker on the driver-side doorjamb); they have a loose molding strip around the front passenger airbag. If the airbag deploys, the strip could come loose and injure the vehicle’s occupants.

Mercedes-Benz will notify owners starting in September, and dealers will replace the affected parts free of charge. Owners can call Mercedes-Benz at 800-367-6372 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
