The most recent thing I read (see link in R172 recall section) was that it only affected about 200 cars -- of which mine is one. It was for SL's and SLK's produced in a short window around March 2014. I just called yesterday and they still don't have the part in stock. It's been a month since I've owned the car and a month since I've been able to have a passenger.
