Mercedes-Benz GL, ML and SLK added to Takata recall

Mercedes-Benz Australia has added the previous-generation GL, ML and SLK to the ever-growing Takata airbag inflator recall. Affected vehicles are fitted with the less-dangerous – but still potentially deadly – 'beta' inflators. Over time, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can make the airbag propellant degrade. If a car with Takata airbags is involved in a crash, sharp metal fragments could shoot through the airbag cushion, posing a serious risk of injury of death.

2009 Mercedes-Benz GL facelift spied

The mid-life facelift for the Mercedes-Benz GLK SUV has been spied almost completely undisguised in northern Scandinavia. The prototype pictured reveals only a mild redesign over the current model, with a slightly tweaked front bumper with new fog lamps and air intakes seemingly the only changes. Similarly, black clad camouflage hides much of the rear bumper, with obvious design changes having been made to the rear skirt and tail lights.
