Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 S63 AMG Coupe, S65 AMG Coupe, S550 Coupe 4Matic, S63 AMG 4Matic Convertible, and S550 Convertible vehicles.

The seat belt extenders on the affected vehicles may not retract as intended and may potentially break the event of a crash.

In the event of a crash, if the seat belt extender does not retract and/or the extender breaks, the seat occupant may not be properly restrained, increasing their risk of injury.

The approximately 672 vehicles impacted by this recall were all manufactured between June 29, 2015 and March 15, 2016.

Mercedes-Benz USA will notify owners, and dealers will update the control unit software on the recalled vehicles, free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin in mid-December 2016. For further information, owners may contact Mercedes customer service at (800) 367-6372.
