Recall roundup: New A-Class in Australia image

Mercedes-Benz has recently announced a recall for the new A-Class generation in Australia, because of a problem with the passenger airbag.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, a total of 46 units of the new Mercedes-Benz A-Class generation will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the passenger airbag solved. The ACCC says that the internal frame of the cars’ dashboards may not have been correctly manufactured, because of the laser on the assembly line, which may have cut more than intended.

There are a total of 46 affected cars sold in Australia, and they are the A200 and A180, and owners of these vehicles will be soon contacted by Mercedes-Benz. The company will organize an inspection and it will replace the affected components, if necessary, free of charge. The fix should take approximately one hour. The affected Mercedes-Benz A-Class vehicles have been assembled between June 1, 2012, and December 30, 2012. The ACCC isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem. If you own one of the vehicles mentioned above, you should contact Mercedes-Benz at once.
