Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling certain model year 2014 SLK 250, SLK 350, SLK 55 AMG, SL 550, SL 63 AMG, and SL 65 AMG vehicles manufactured between March 19, 2014 and May 5, 2014.

In the event of a crash necessitating front passenger airbag deployment, the front passenger seat airbag may not properly deploy, increasing the risk of injury to the front passenger seat occupant.

Mercedes-Benz will notify owners of the recalled vehicles, and Mercedes dealers will replace the front passenger airbag at no cost to vehicles owners.

The parts required to remedy this recall are not currently available. Mercedes-Benz will send an interim letter to owners in July 2014. A second owner letter will be mailed when the parts are available. For more information on this recall, contact Mercedes-Benz at 800-367-6372.

Note: Until the vehicle has been remedied, owners are advised that passengers or other items should not be placed in the passenger seat.
