Takata Airbag Recall
Mercedes-Benz vehicles imported by Mercedes-Benz New Zealand Ltd ARE NOT fitted with Takata airbags containing "Alpha inflators".
Mercedes-Benz does not currently consider any Takata airbag inflators in its vehicles to pose a safety risk. This assessment is based on comprehensive laboratory testing and we are not aware of any ruptured inflators in Mercedes-Benz vehicles worldwide.
Any recalls that apply to ‘new’ Mercedes-Benz vehicles in New Zealand are managed by Mercedes-Benz New Zealand Ltd, with owners contacted by letter. If and when you do receive a letter regarding a recall, please arrange an appointment with an authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer as soon as possible to carry out any necessary service measures.
Mercedes-Benz will continue to work with the New Zealand Government and its agencies on this matter.
We will keep our website updated and will distribute additional information when available.
