Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.
Mercedes-Benz (Mercedes) is recalling certain model year 2013 SL63,
SL550, and SL65 vehicles manufactured January 16, 2013, through April
30, 2013. The affected vehicles are equipped with an occupant
classification system (OCS) that may not detect a very light person
sitting in the front passenger seat.
If the OCS does not detect a very light person sitting in the seat,
the passenger side air bag would be turned off. In the event of a
crash necessitating side air bag deployment, the passenger would be at
an increased risk of injury.
Mercedes will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger
side seat cushion including the OCS. The recall is expected to begin
in December 2013. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-201-573-0600.
