Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) is recalling 3,615 model year 2019 A220 vehicles.

The air-conditioning condensation drain hose may not be installed properly, reports ConsumerAffairs.

Report indicates this development may allow water to enter the driver and passenger foot wells and the centre tunnel area, potentially damaging certain electrical components.

Water entering electrical components can result in malfunctions of the supplemental restraint system (SRS), failure to start, activation of the limp-home mode while driving, and an impairment of other features, increasing the risk of injury or crash.

On rectifying the error, MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the air conditioning drain hose installation, correcting it ─if necessary ─ free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin September 15, 2020, while affected owners may contact MBUSA Customer Service on (800) 367-6372.
