In the event of a crash, an occupant may not be properly restrained which could result in injuries.

Air Bags

Summary
Certain passenger vehicles equipped with sport model steering wheels fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, "occupant crash protection." In certain low risk air bag deployment tests conducted by NHTSA, using an out-of-position unbelted 5th percentile female crash test dummy, irregularities were demonstrated indicating that occupants may not be properly protected in a crash.
Actions
Dealers will install a new air bag inflator module free of charge. The recall began on March 15, 2006. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.
