Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling one model year 2019 S450.
The A, B, and C pillar covers may have been improperly installed, possibly affecting the deployment of the side curtain airbags and allowing the covers to detach in the event of a crash.
If a side curtain airbag does not deploy as intended, or the pillar covers detach during a crash, there is an increased risk of injury.
What to do
MBUSA will notify the owner, and a dealer will inspect the pillar covers, reinstalling them as necessary free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin October 8, 2019.
Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
