The repair work will take around 4 hours to complete.

The Old Mercedes C Class sedans manufactured between 2008 and 2009 have been quietly recalled in India over faulty airbag control units. The malfunctioning control unit may result in deployment of airbags when it’s not needed or failure to deploy when it’s needed. Either way, it could lead to injuries.

Mercedes is currently getting in touch with concerned customers and is requesting them to book an appointment at the nearest dealership to fix the issue. The problem is estimated to take 4 hours to fix and it will be done free of cost.

The German automaker has not revealed further details about the recall but it could be related to the widespread Takata fiasco. It’s to be noted that 2008 and 2009 C Classes were recalled in the USA as well due to the same issue.
