Washington, DC: As of Thursday, February 16, 2017, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”), a division of the US Department of Transportation, has posted a total of 50 vehicle, tire, accessory or other related product recalls this month. Are yours listed? http://ht.ly/5G8bb
Among the 50 recalls the NHTSA has announced this February comes news of the following:
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (“MBUSA”) has recalled certain 2016 GLE350 4Matic and GLS 450 4Matic vehicles. The windshield bonding may be insufficient and, as a result, the windshield may separate from the vehicle in a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection” and number 212, “Windshield Mounting.”
According to the NHTSA, if the windshield detaches in the event of a crash, the passenger frontal air bag may not be supported properly after it deploys, increasing the risk of injury.
