BEIJING, April 14 (Xinhua) -- Beijing Benz Automotive Co. will recall 1,925 Mercedes-Benz vehicles as of May 31, 2019, due to defective airbags.

The recall involves its C-class sedans and GLC sport utility vehicles manufactured between January and March 2018, according to the State Administration for Market Regulation.

The knee airbags for the driver may not provide effective protection due to a fault of the airbag supplier, thus increasing the risk of injury to people in the vehicle in the case of accidents.

The company will replace the defective knee airbags free of charge for affected vehicles.
