Consumer Reports says Mercedes-Benz is recalling 22,637 cars and convertibles because the front seats might not lock into place.
The automaker says the seats could fold over in a crash, raising the risk of injuries
Vehicles involved: 22,637 coupes and convertibles built from Aug. 14, 2015 through June 23, 2017, including:
2017-2019 C43 AMG
2017-2018 C63 AMG
The problem: The front seats might not lock into place as expected, meaning that they could fold forward in a crash, increasing the risk of injuries.
The fix: Dealers will examine the seats and replace the seatback lock if necessary at no charge to owners.
How to contact the manufacturer: Owners can call Mercedes-Benz customer service at 800-367-6372.

Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.
If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and this recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly.
