Which year Mercedes cars have airbags that detect the driver's weight/height etc?
I know most newer cars have airbags that can detect the driver's weight/height and will deploy accordingly. (They won't go off if in case it is a VERY small adult etc because that person can be injured/killed by the air bag). I am an adult but 4ft11 and 100 lbs.
Does anyone know if 2003 CLK's have this feature or no?
Also, what is the cut off weight/height for these bags to deploy?
From what I've read almost all of the deaths caused by air bags in minor frontal accidents were short statured people/women (like under 5'2) whereas I'm 4ft11.
Yes btw I already know about moving the seat back, tilting the steering wheel down, keeping 10" away from the wheel and pedal extensors so no need to mention those. Thanks.
