Under certain circumstances, this situation may cause the locking mechanism not to perform as required by the standard for use with older non-latch child restraints.

Seat Belts — Rear

Date Announced

Vehicles Affected
Mercedes-Benz Recall #
NHTSA Campaign #
Certain vehicles fail to comply with some of the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 208, "occupant crash protection." The rear outboard seat belts do not comply with the lap-belt lockability requirement which enables the lap belt portion of the belt to be locked by the user to facilitate the use of older non-latch design child restraint devices.
Dealers will replace all potentially affected seat belts. The recall began on November 19, 2007. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372.
