Problem description:

The ground connection of the passenger airbag may be inadequate and any electrostatic charge might not be conducted away through it.

As a result, the passenger airbag could be triggered unnecessarily even if it has been properly deactivated because a child seat is being used on the passenger seat. This could lead to an increased risk of accident or injury.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA models affected by this recall were manufactured between 19 February 2020 and 12 August 2020.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Mercedes Benz dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.

Check the vehicle's history

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
