Takata recall the airbags in my vehicle need to be recalled and replaced. My vehicle is a 2007. How much longer will it take for Mercedes to make a recall and rectify the airbags that presents a potential and dangerous hazard? I want peace of mind and it is distressing and stressful to know that the airbags in my car present such a hazard to my life and safety. Los angeles does experience humid and hot weather especially in the summer time. Takata and Mercedes Benz ought to make those living in los angeles one of the priorities.

While driving on highway with a passenger at highway speed the SRS malfunction warning light illuminated instructing to take car for service. There was no accident and no object was struck. Mercedes mechanic advised that air bags would not deploy until this failure was corrected. Mechanic stated failure was in passenger seat belt buckle. Apparently many other Mercedes owners have had this problem. Sounds somewhat similar to Honda's latest problem.
