Recalls for 2016 Smart fortwo 2dr Cpe Passion
2016 SMART FORTWO
NHTSA Campaign ID: 17V448000
Component: PARKING BRAKE
Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.
Manufacture Dates: 06/16/2015 - 08/12/2016
Potential Units Affected: 5061
Defect Description:
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2016 smart fortwo vehicles. In these vehicles, the lock nut that secures the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever may loosen over time, resulting in increased parking brake lever travel before the parking brake engages.
Consequence:
As the parking brake lever travel increases, the holding force may decrease to a point where the vehicle is no longer safely secured in all parking situations, allowing the vehicle to unexpectedly move when parked on a slope, increasing the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the parking brake cable lock nut, free of charge. The recall began September 20, 2017. Owners may contact smart customer service at 1-877-496-3691.
2016 SMART FORTWO COUPE
NHTSA Campaign ID: 17V179000
Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS
Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.
Manufacture Dates: 06/16/2015 - 09/24/2015
Potential Units Affected: 2213
Defect Description:
Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2016 Smart Fortwo vehicles. The horizontal headlight adjustment mechanism on these vehicles may not have been properly sealed off to prevent future adjustment. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence:
If the headlight can be adjusted horizontally, the headlight may be adjusted outside of the designed specifications, reducing the driver's visibility and potentially blinding oncoming traffic, increasing the risk of a crash.
Action to take:
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will install the correct sealing caps to prevent the headlights from being adjusted horizontally, free of charge. The recall began September 8, 2017. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
