Mercedes-Benz Australia has announced a small-volume recall on its small A-Class and B-Class hatches over concerns that the airbags may not deploy correctly in a collision.

The fault centres on the interior fuse box, where Mercedes-Benz believes that fuses inside may become loose over time.

This can cause various systems to fail, but most crucial among the potentially affected systems, Mercedes-Benz says, is the airbag deployment function.

The recall announcement states that incorrect deployment of the airbags “may cause increased injury to the vehicle occupants in the event of a collision”.

A total of 64 vehicles have been recalled, affecting models built between September 8 and November 7, 2014.

Mercedes-Benz has confirmed it will write to the owners of affected vehicles.
