Roughly one million vehicles have been recalled by Mercedes-Benz for a faulty wiring problem that could spontaneously cause the driver’s side airbags to deploy.
About half or 500,000 Mercedes-Benz cars and SUVs with this problem are located here in the United States. While there are no fatalities stemming from this recall, there have been a handful of minor injuries such as bruising or abrasions reported in the U.S.
The vehicles affected include the 2012-2018 model year A, B, C and E-Class cars and CLA, GLA and GLC SUVs.
The problem that has led to the sudden airbag deployment is found in the steering wheel column where the company has found broken clock springs, an electrostatic discharge and poor grounding may be to blame for the airbags being set off.
