Takata Airbag Recall
Mercedes-Benz vehicles ARE NOT fitted with Takata airbags containing "Alpha inflators".
While the Government compulsory recall does not apply to NZ New Mercedes-Benz, we will be issuing a recall that applies to various NZ New Mercedes-Benz passenger car models produced between 2005 and 2017 and NZ New Mercedes-Benz van models produced between 2006 and 2017 that are equipped with non-desiccated frontal PSAN (Phase Stabilized Ammonium Nitrate) inflators.
The affected airbags will be replaced in stages, as the replacement airbags are currently in production. This will ensure an orderly and responsible use of parts availability.
We now have a Recall Initiation Schedule for NZ New Passenger Cars and Vans. This will be regularly updated as replacement parts become available. The schedule is attached below.
Detailed instructions will be communicated with registered owners of the affected vehicles as each stage is released.
The VIN lookup available on this website, is for customers with a NZ New Mercedes-Benz to check if their vehicle is affected.
We will keep our website updated and will distribute additional information when available.
