Registered 2005 SLK350
I understand that the risk is relatively low. But so, in my mind at least, is the risk of my having an accident serious enough to make airbag deployment beneficial given that I've been driving for 57 years with nothing more serious than a couple minor fender benders. OTOH, had an airbag deploy on a Jeep Cherokee of mine while someone else was driving it. Damage to front bumper was trivial enough that the airbag replacement was the most expensive part of the repair. Makes me wonder if there are any statistics showing the percentage of accidents where airbag deployment had no effect other than to increase cost of repairs.No...I did not get a second letter. Also if you look at the number of injuries verses the total number of cars driving around with these airbags, the risk of something happening is really very low.
Update: From a current Reuters article there have been 22 deaths and over 200 injuries so far....however the total number of vehicles out there with the airbags subject to the recall is 125,000,000 (42,000,000 in the US).
For me, it's now a moot point. My SLK350 is too old to have the problem and I solved my GLK350 problem the expensive way :wink: by trading in my 2010 for a 2015 that doesn't have the Takata issue.
