The status of the passenger side air bag in the recalled vehicles may not display correctly.

According to the NHTSA, if the passenger air bag is incorrectly displayed as ‘ON’ when it is not, a front seat passenger may be unaware that the air bag will not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.

MBUSA will notify registered owners, and dealers will update the audio head unit software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 2, 2019. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
