Daimler AG has issued a recall of roughly 705,000 Mercedes-Benz cars and roughly 136,000 Daimler vans in the United States after learning the vehicles are equipped with potentially defective Takata airbags.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) alerted Daimler of the airbag issue leading to today’s announcement.
The cost of the recall has been estimated at about €340 million.
Takata airbags have been linked to as many as 11 deadly crashes worldwide and more than 150 injuries. Millions of vehicles have been recalled over the past few years due to the problem, but until recently they were mostly by Honda Motors Corp.
