Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 542 model year 2021 CLS450s, AMG E53s, AMG CLS53s, E350s, E450s, AMG GT43s & AMG GT53s, model year 2020 S450s, S560s, G550s & AMG GLC63s, and model year 2020-2021 GLC300s, and AMG G63s.

The side crash sensor connectors may come loose, which could delay the activation of airbags and seat belts in a side impact crash.

Airbags and seat belts that don't function as intended can increase the risk of injury during a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect and replace -- as necessary -- the side impact crash sensors free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed September 10, 2021.

Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at (800) 367-6372.
