IMO those are incorrectly designed devices, and all the dangerous ones in cars now should be removed, a letter that says they don't have a replacement now, does nothing to address the potential danger.

This may give you some hope...

Takata has agreed not to sign any more contracts to sell ammonium nitrate inflators and phase it out of manufacturing by the end of 2018.

I would bet alot of folks think they are safe from the new replacement airbags. Just not worth losing your eyes over.

Mercedes is at one of the lowest risks, I don't think you guys should be pulling fuses, as most seem to be working fine. Mercedes has 0 records of deaths versus Honda and Lexus which were the highest risk and did have deaths.

Dealership got back to me a few days ago and said the part has come in for my wife's GLK. Scheduled an appointment to drop the car off tomorrow for the repair. Looks like it's legit just not sure when they'll get to the C63s.

Disabling the airbag is a really bad idea. Lots of lives have been saved when a Mercedes airbag deploys. Zero lives have been lost due to shrapnel from a Mercedes airbag deployment. Disabling avoids an extremely small risk by replacing it with a much bigger risk. What's your liability - both legal and mental - if your passenger dies or is severely injured because you disabled their airbag?
