Mercedes-Benz has announced a recall for vehicles due to potentially flying sunroofs.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2016 C300, C300 4Matic, and C450 AMG 4Matic vehicles. The affected vehicles may be equipped with a panoramic sunroof that may not be properly bonded, allowing the glass to detach and fall from the vehicle during operation.

If the panoramic glass detaches during vehicle operation, it can increase the risk of injury or crash.

Mercedes-Benz believes that about 50 vehicles are impacted by this defect.

The company will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the bonding of the rear sunroof glass panel, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late March 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at (800) 367-6372.
