121,800 Mercedes-Benz Vehicles Recalled for Seatbelt Defect

Mercedes-Benz is recalling 121,800 vehicles due to a defect which can leave motorists without functioning seat-belts.

Details of the Mercedes-Benz Recalls

According to reports, the recall deals with faulty seat belt latch plates what insert into the buckles for the vehicles’ outboard rear seats. Complaints show that the latch plates can retract into interior paneling, preventing occupants from being able to use the seat belts.

The lack of a functioning seat belt can leave occupants at a significantly increased risk of injury or death in the event of a collision.

Mercedes-Benz will begin notifying owners of the defect beginning May 14. Dealers will install a buffer to the C-pillar paneling to resolve the defect. Repairs will be made at no cost to the owner.
