Mercedes-Benz Recall Information

Mercedes-Benz Service

Mercedes-Benz of Barrington is committed to the very best customer service, including keeping you informed about product recalls. A safety recall can be instituted by a carmaker or by the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) when they become aware of a defective part that affects safety. The NHTSA oversees safety standards for the automotive sector, with the goal of reducing vehicular crashes and injuries.

When a defect is discovered, each manufacturer identifies vehicles that might be affected and create a list of Vehicle Identification Numbers (VINs) that it forwards to the dealerships and the owners. An authorized dealer will correct the issue free of charge.

Mercedes-Benz makes it easy to check your car’s VIN for outstanding recalls. Simply enter the 17-digit VIN at the Mercedes-Benz Recall Information web page and you'll receive a listing of any outstanding recalls for your vehicle.

Furthermore, if your car was affected by the Takata Airbag Inflator Recall, you can check the availability of a replacement airbag on the same page. Just enter your state, your car's model and year.

Mercedes-Benz vehicles are among the world’s best made and safest, and our dealership wants you to confidently enjoy each mile. To that end, we urge you to respond quickly to any letter you receive from Mercedes-Benz alerting you to a safety recall. Just bring your car to our Service Department and we’ll get you back on the road as quickly as possible.
