Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) has issued three separate safety recalls affecting various models.
The automaker is recalling an estimated 12,327 2021 C-Class, E-Class, E-Class Coupe and Convertible, GLC, CLS, AMG GT 4-door Coupe and G-Class vehicles for an electrical issue.
Specifically, a faulty electrical contact within the seat position switch may prevent the driver and passenger air bags and seat belt force limiters from properly activating during a crash.
In the event of a collision, air bags and seat belts that malfunction can increase the risk of injury.
To fix the problem, MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seat position switches, at no cost to customers.
In a second action, MBUSA is recalling about 5,215 2021 GLB35 AMG and 2020-2021 GLB250 vehicles because the side spoilers on the tailgate may have been installed incorrectly, allowing them to detach.
Detached spoilers can fly into the roadway, creating a hazard and upping the chances of a collision or injury.
To remedy the matter, MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the side spoilers, free of charge.
Wheel Arch Covers
In a third action, MBUSA is recalling an estimated 2,362 2020-2021 GLB250 vehicles for a structural problem. Specifically, the wheel arch covers on the front fenders might have been installed improperly, allowing them to unfasten.
Detached wheel arch covers can become a road hazard, increasing the likelihood of a crash or bodily injury.
To fix the problem, MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will check the installation of the front wheel arch covers and correct them as necessary, at no cost to customers.
All three recalls begin May 31, 2021. Owners can reach MBUSA customer service at (800)-367-6372.
