According to the German car maker, the recalled vehicles include the GLA 200, GLA 250 4MATIC, AMG GLA 45 4MATIC, and the CLA 200. Others included in the recall list are the CLA 250, CLA 250 4MATIC, AMG CLA 45 4MATIC, and A 200, as well as the 9: A 250 and AMG A 45 4MATIC models. The recalled units were manufactured between November 2011 and July 2017.
Owners of the affected models have been told to contact their dealer immediately when the red airbag warning light appears on their dashboard. The cars, however, are safe to drive under normal conditions, Mercedes said.
The process of checking and repairing airbags is expected to take 60 minutes for each car.
The recall programme begins on May 28, 2018, and will end on December 31, 2022.
In April, Mercedes-Benz Viet Nam recalled 3,624 vehicles which it said were at risk of catching fire due to a potentially faulty fuse.
That recall, which runs until December 31, 2022, applies to its C200, C250, C300, and E200 models, as well as GLC 250 4MATIC and GLC 300 4MATIC units, which were manufactured between September 2015 and February 2017. — VNS
