    2012 MERCEDES-BENZ E350
    NHTSA Campaign ID:AIR BAGS:SIDE/WINDOW
    Manufacturer:MERCEDES-BENZ USA, LLC.
    Manufacture Dates:04/02/2012 - 06/29/2012
    Potential Units Affected:499

    Defect Description:

    Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain model year 2012 E350 and E550 Coupe vehicles, manufactured April 2, 2012, through June 29, 2012. Improper stitching of the right side window curtain air bag may cause it to not deploy as intended in the affected vehicles.

    Consequence:

    In the event of an accident necessitating the deployment of the right window curtain air bag, the improper stitching may cause it to deflate more quickly than intended, reducing the protection it may provide, resulting in an increased risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

    Action:

    Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the right side window curtain air bag. The recall began on December 21, 2012. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.
    2012 MERCEDES-BENZ E350
    NHTSA Campaign ID:FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE
    Manufacturer:Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.
    Manufacture Dates:04/18/2011 - 07/12/2011
    Potential Units Affected:5800

    Defect Description:

    Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 S400, S550, S550 4Matic, S63 AMG, C300, C300 4Matic, E350, GLK350, GLK350 4Matic, CL550 4Matic, and CL63 AMG vehicles manufactured from April 18, 2011, through July 12, 2011. Due to an irregularity stemming from the molding process of the fuel filter flange, the fuel filter flange may crack when operated in high temperatures.

    Consequence:

    If the fuel filter flange cracks, it will leak fuel which may lead to a fire if an external ignition source is present.

    Action:

    Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel filter, free of charge. The recall campaign is expected to begin in February 2013. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.

    NHTSA Campaign ID:EQUIPMENT ADAPTIVE
    Manufacturer:Cummings Mobility Conversion & Supply
    Manufacture Dates:01/01/2006 - 10/08/2014

    Defect Description:

    Cummings Mobility Conversion & Supply (Cummings) is recalling certain model year 2006-2014 Ford E-150, E-250, E-350, Chevrolet Express, 2006-2008 Dodge Sprinter, and 2009-2014 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter, and 2013 Ford Transit Connect vehicles manufactured January 1, 2006, to October 8, 2014, equipped with certain model S2005, S2010, S5005, S5010, S5505, and S5510 wheelchair lifts manufactured by Ricon Corporation after January 1, 2006. The platform side plate of the affected wheelchair lifts may crack.

    Consequence:

    If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.

    Action:

    Cummings will notify owners to take buses to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers. Any platform that has already started cracking will be replaced, free of charge. The recall began January 13, 2015. Owners may contact Cumming's customer service at 1-800-639-5438 or Ricon customer service at 1-800-322-2884. Cumming's number for this recall is 14E-041.
