Recall Roundup: Mercedes SL Heading Back to Dealers
By: Jeff Youngs, 12/9/2013
The OCS is equipped with sensors that determine whether or not it would be necessary to deploy the front passenger's air bag in a collision. If these sensors inaccurately determine whether the seat is occupied, a very light person may be put at additional risk in the event of a crash because the air bag will not deploy.
Mercedes-Benz is notifying the affected vehicle owners and will replace the front passenger's seat cushion with a new one that contains a more sensitive OCS. The recall, NHTSA campaign ID number 13V542, will be conducted in December of 2013. Owners with questions can contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-201-573-0600.
