Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall on its G Class SUV, including its high-performance G55 AMG variant, due to the possibility of part of the interior trim breaking off and becoming a projectile in the event one of the front airbags go off.
The recall only affects the 2011 Mercedes-Benz G550 model and the G55 AMG from the same model year, and even then it’s only the models manufactured from September 20, 2010, through April 27, 2011.
In total there are some 189 vehicles affected by the latest recall in the U.S.
The automaker recommends owners affected by the latest recall take their vehicles to their nearest Mercedes-Benz dealership, which will reinforce the connection between the molding strip and airbag cover flap, free of charge.
Owners will be notified by mail in the coming weeks if their vehicles need the modification. For further information you can contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 1-888-327-4236 (reference recall campaign number 12V380000) or Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.
