2017 Mercedes-Benz A-Class recalled

Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for seven MY2017 A-Class hatchbacks, over concerns the windscreen could separate from the body. According to the German marque, the bonder for the lower area of the windscreen may not comply with correct specifications. If the issue occurs, Mercedes-Benz warns the glass could separate from the body in an accident, which could minimise the protective effect of the front passenger airbag, which wouldn't be supported by the glass as intended.
