PhotoMercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 65 model year 2017 E300s and E300 4Matics.

The front passenger airbag may not deploy properly if a passenger is sitting on the edge of the seat or is lying in the seat with the seat reclined.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection."

Failure of the airbag to deploy as intended could increase the risk of occupant injury.

What to do

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the air bag control module software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2017.

Owners can contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
