2017 Mercedes-Benz front airbags may fail to ignite 17V080000


Updated Friday Sep 29, 2017


The pelvis airbag or the front passenger airbag may fail to ignite in the event of a crash on certain 2017 Mercedes-Benz cars. According to documents sent to the NHTSA at least 1054 vehicles have been affected by this problem. 


On certain E-Class and GLA/CLA vehicles (213 207 156 117 chassis), the propellant mix ratio in certain airbag igniters might not meet the manufacturing specification. Thus, in the event of a crash, the igniters might not deploy in situations where the pelvis airbag, the front passenger airbag, the kneebag, or windowbag is required
