Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 345 model year 2018 Mercedes-Benz E300, E300 4Matic, E43 AMG 4Matic, E400 4Matic, E63S AMG 4Matic+, and model year 2019 CLS450 4Matic vehicles.

The Occupant Classification System (OCS) may not be properly calibrated, resulting in the front passenger airbag not being deactivated if a child seat is in the front seat.

If a child seat is in the front seat and the passenger airbag is not deactivated, the risk of injury can increase.

What to do

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger seat cushion, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin October 3, 2018.

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