What is the Takata recall?

Daimler AG was informed that Takata submitted a "Defect Information Report" to NHTSA in the US on January 25, 2016, reporting a potential safety defect for SDI and PSDI-5 driver-side airbag inflators. Takata's investigation of affected inflators to date indicates that exposure to certain environmental conditions (several years of exposure to persistent conditions of high absolute humidity), could lead to over-aggressive combustion in the event of a driver's-side air bag deployment.

On May 16, 2016, Takata submitted an additional "Defect Information Report" to NHTSA that included PSPI-2 passenger-side airbag inflators.

In a crash where the air bag system deploys, the air bag inflator housing may rupture. In the event of an inflator rupture, metal fragments could pass through the air bag material, which may result in injury or death to vehicle occupants. To date, we are not aware of any instances of ruptured inflators in Mercedes-Benz vehicles.
