Update: Mercedes AMG Recalled for Seat Belt Problem
Mercedes is recalling 2021 AMG GLE 53 and AMG GLE 63 coupes which were manufactured with middle seat belt buckles that may be in the gap below the seat cushion. If the buckle can’t be retrieved, the buckle latch will be inoperable and unable to restrain an occupant. “An unrestrained occupant has an increased risk of injury in the event of a crash,” NHTSA said. This recall began on Dec. 29, 2021.
What’s the Problem?
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:
- 2019 E53 AMG 4MATIC
- 2019 E63 AMG 4MATIC Wagon
- 2019 E63S AMG 4MATIC Wagon
The incorrect driver air bag and software version may have been installed in these vehicles, which could cause the restraint systems to not function as intended during a crash, increasing the risk of injury.
Mercedes is notifying owners of the recalled vehicles, and dealers will fix the problem free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on Feb. 4, 2020.
