In a rather unexpected move, Mercedes is recalling the 2014 S-Class, with the campaign set to fix a front seat belt issue. The recall affects a total of 290 S-Class units in the US, with the cars being produced between April 11, 2013 through October 14, 2013.
To be more precise, the front seat belt anchor in the affected vehicles may not be installed properly and could come loose in the event of on accident. This, of course, would means that the occupant(s) may not be properly secured.

Mercedes-Benz is scheduled to debut the recall this month. The company’s dealers will inspect and correct the front seat belt anchor fitting free of charge.

For further information, you can contact Mercedes-Benz at 1-800-367-6372, with the recall number being 2013110008. You can also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

While such a problem isn’t exactly what we’d call “acceptable” when it comes to the Mercedes S-Class, we’re pretty sure this won’t have any effect on sales. In fact, Mercedes has recently decided to ramp-up S-Class production in Sindelfingen, Germany to meet the hefty demand.
