Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 57 model year 2018 AMG GT, AMG GT C, GLC43 AMG 4Matic, GLC300, GLC300 4Matic and GLC350e 4Matic vehicles.

The housing for the front driver-side airbag inflator may have been made with defective steel.

In the event of an airbag deployment, the defective steel may cause the inflator to improperly inflate the driver-side air bag and potentially rupture, resulting in serious injury or death to the driver or occupants.

What to do

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front driver-side airbag module, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin May 29, 2018.

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