Mercedes-Benz has recalled its redesigned S-Class due to an airbag fault.

“Due to a software issue with the airbag control unit, the front passenger airbag may become deactivated,” the company says in its recall notice.

“If the airbag is deactivated in the event of an accident, this may increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupant.”

If you own an affected S450, you’ll need to contact a Mercedes-Benz dealership to organise a free repair.

If you have any further questions, you can contact the Mercedes-Benz customer assistance centre on 1300 300 896.
