Seat Belt May Bind, Causing Slack

If the seat belt binds, slack may develop through occupant movement which may lead to increased personal injury in the event of a crash.

 

Summary

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2018 Mercedes-Benz AMG GT, AMG GT R, AMG GT C and AMG GT S vehicles. The seat belts may bind within the guidance loops possibly causing slack in the seat belts.

 

Remedy

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will reconfigure the seat belt guides, free of charge. Owners will be notified of the recall in January 2018 and they will receive a second letter when the parts become available, currently expected to be in February 2018. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-877-496-3691.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
