Mercedes Recalls SL63, SL550, and SL65 Vehicles
Mercedes-Benz is recalling certain model year 2013 SL63, SL550, and SL65 vehicles manufactured from January 16, 2013 through April 30, 2013.
The affected vehicles are equipped with an occupant classification system (OCS) that may not detect a very light person sitting in the front passenger seat.
If the OCS does not detect a very light person sitting in the seat, the passenger side airbag would be turned off. In the event of a crash necessitating side airbag deployment, the passenger would be at an increased risk of injury.
The owners of all recalled vehicles will be notified directly by Mercedes, and local Mercedes-Benz dealers will replace the passenger side seat cushion including the OCS. This service will be performed free of charge.
