Mercedes-Benz has announced two separate recall campaigns for the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
The first recall affects the S550 4Matic, Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG 4Matic and the range-topping S65 AMG Coupe produced between January 27 2014 and April 2 2015 for the U.S. market. The recall says that the front seat belts may have been installed on the wrong side meaning the driver’s belt could have been fastened to the front passenger seat and vice versa. This therefore impacts the seat belt locking behaviour and means the passenger seat’s child seat restraint function is no longer available.
In total, 2580 S-Classes are affected by the issue with dealers set to inspect the seat belts and correct them if necessary,
As for the second recall, it affects just four units of the 2015S550 Hybrid made from May 13 2013 to April 22 2015. After the car has been driven in all-electric mode, the fuel pump may be unable to restart the internal combustion engine meaning the car will stall thereby increasing the risk of a crash. To fix the issue, dealers will update the fuel system control unit software.
