The reason for this recall is that due to the inadequate sealing of the front bumper of some vehicles, water may leak into the interior of the vehicle, causing corrosion or short circuits in the wiring harness of the Pre-Safe safety system inside the car. In extreme cases, the seat belt tensioner and seat adjustment may not work properly, increasing the risk of collision injury to the driver and passengers, posing a safety hazard. Mercedes-Benz (China) Automotive Sales Co., Ltd. will reseal the front bumper of the recalled vehicles for free through authorized Mercedes-Benz dealers to eliminate safety hazards.
