Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 3,615 model year 2019 A220s.
The air conditioning condensation drain hose may not be installed properly. This may allow water to enter the driver and passenger foot wells and the center tunnel area, potentially damaging certain electrical components.
Water entering electrical components, can result in malfunctions of the supplemental restraint system (SRS), failure to start, activation of the limp-home mode while driving, and an impairment of other features, increasing the risk of injury or crash.
What to do
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the air conditioning drain hose installation, correcting it -- if necessary -- free of charge.
This recall is expected to begin September 15, 2020.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
