Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC "MBUSA" is recalling certain 2018 Mercedes-Benz E300, E300 4Matic, E43 AMG 4Matic, E400 4Matic, E63S AMG 4Matic+, and 2019 CLS450 4Matic vehicles. The Occupant Classification System "OCS" may not be properly calibrated, resulting in the front passenger air bag not being deactivated if a child seat is in the front seat.
If a child seat is in the front seat and the passenger air bag is not deactivated, in the event of a crash, it can increase the risk of injury.
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion, free of charge. An interim notification was mailed to owners October 2, 2018. A second notification will be sent when the repair is available. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
