Mercedes-Benz GLC (2017 – 2018)

Published on 3 February 2019

In vehicles with automatic child-seat detection, the status shown in the centre console of the passenger airbags may not be correctly indicated. In this case, the vehicle users would not be correctly informed of the actual activation status of the passenger airbag and may not react appropriately to a potentially false passenger classification, thereby increasing the risk of injury for passengers in the event of an accident.

The Mercedes-Benz GLC models affected by this recall were produced between 1. 8. 2017 – 11. 10. 2018.

Company recall code: 8295004
