A correctly fastened seatbelt may be inaccurately detected as being unfastened, preventing the seat belt pre-tensioners from activating in the event of a crash.
Consequence:
      If the seat belt tensioning does not activate in the event of a crash, it can increase the risk of injury.
Remedy:
      MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seat belt buckles, free of charge. An interim letter will be mailed beginning January 25, 2019 to notify owners of the issue.
