Takata Airbag Recall Campaign

Mercedes-Benz AG was informed that Takata submitted a “Defect Information Report” to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the US on January 25, 2016, reporting a potential safety defect for SDI and PSDI-5 driver-side airbag inflators. Takata’s investigation of affected inflators to date indicates that exposure to certain environmental conditions (several years of exposure to persistent conditions of high absolute humidity), could lead to over-aggressive combustion in the event of a driver’s-side airbag deployment.

Starting on May 16th, 2016, Takata submitted additional “Defect Information Reports” to NHTSA that included PSPI-2 front passenger side airbag inflators. For more information on the filings, please consult this US Map of Takata Zones.

In a crash where the airbag system deploys, the airbag inflator housing may explode. In the event of an inflator explosion, metal fragments could pass through the airbag material, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants. To date, Mercedes-Benz has not been made aware of any instances of exploded inflators in Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
