Mercedes To Recall 61,000 C-Class Models
Here's some news C-Class owners won't be too excited to hear. Today, Mercedes-Benz USA has announced that 61,000 Mercedes C-Class are being recalled, due to irregularities involving the driver’s side air bag which were discovered during government testing. The recall affects 2005-2006 model year Mercedes C-Class. To remedy the situation, vehicles will have new driver’s side air bag modules installed as part of the recall. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said during government compliance testing some irregularities were found involving the air bags, however according to Mercedes-Benz spokesman Rob Moran, Mercedes does not “feel this represents a risk in real- world situations, only in this clinical situation.” Either way, the cars are going back, which is bad news for Mercedes.
