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.
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.
Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the right
side window curtain air bag. The recall campaign is expected to begin
in November 2012. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.
