MERCEDES-BENZ GLA (01/01/2018 – 30/03/2018) RECALL: On affected vehicles, it has been determined that drivers airbags with potentially faulty gas generator housing material may have been installed in vehicles of model series 156 176 246 205 238 & 253. If the material of the gas generator housing fails during airbag deployment in the event of a crash the airbag system would possibly no longer have a restraint effect. In addition, separating parts could enter the passenger compartment. This could lead to an increased risk of injury.


Remedy: On affected vehicles replace the driver´s airbag
