2017-05-12 (Published by NHTSA on 2017-05-20)
Recall Summary: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2015 SLK 250, 2016 SLK 350, 2016-2017 SLC 300, and 2017 SLC 43 AMG vehicles. In these vehicles, the electronic stability control (ESC) system software may incorrectly keep the brakes slightly applied.
Hazard: If brake pads are constantly applied over long periods of driving, the brake components may heat up, affecting braking performance and increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, the dragging brakes may overheat, increasing the risk of a fire.
Remedy: MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will update the software for the ESC system, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in late June 2017. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
Additional Info: 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.

Due to an air bag assembly error, the front passenger air bag may not deploy properly.
Hazard: In the event of a crash necessitating front passenger air bag deployment, the front passenger seat airbag may not properly deploy, increasing the risk of injury to the front passenger seat occupant.
Remedy: Mercedes-Benz will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag, free of charge. Parts for the remedy are not currently available. Mercedes-Benz distributed an interim letter to owners on July 17, 2014. A second owner letter will be mailed when parts are available. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.

2013-06-05 (Published by NHTSA on 2013-06-13)
Recall Summary: Mercedes-Benz (Mercedes) is recalling certain model year 2013 SLK250 and SLK350 vehicles manufactured October 9, 2012, through November 20, 2012. These vehicles are equipped with an occupant classification system (OCS) that may not correctly differentiate between a child seat or a very light person being in the front passenger seat.
Hazard: If the OCS incorrectly classifies a very light person as being a child seat, in the event of a crash necessitating airbag deployment, the system would deactivate the passenger airbag, increasing the risk of injury.
Remedy: Mercedes will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger side seat cushion including the OCS. The recall is expected to begin during June 2013. Owners may contact Mercedes at 1-201-573-0600.
Additional Info: 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.
