On Tuesday, Mercedes-Benz’s parent company, Daimler, recalled 841,000 vehicles in the United States due to the same airbag issue.
The recall affects roughly 705,000 Mercedes-Benz vehicles and 136,000 Daimler vans, the company said in a statement. It will cost the automaker about $384 million.
The news is the latest in a string of recall expansions surrounding airbag inflator canisters made by Japanese manufacturer Takata. The canisters have been known to deploy too forcefully in a crash, showering passengers with plastic and metal debris.
The airbags have been blamed for nine deaths. Bloomberg reported that it’s “the largest consumer-safety recall in U.S. history. ”
