Smart is preparing for it’s U.S. debut but they should make sure they can take care of a problem in their current markets first. Over 1,600 of the revamped ForTwo micro cars have been recalled Friday.
The problem seems to be with their steering locking rings are not affixed properly. This could cause a potential hazard while driving.
The Smarts have mostly been recalled and fixed already. Most owners were fine with this and it took little time to repair. No accidents or injuries were reported and the countries affected were not listed.
This version is also the revamped version of the platform, the one we should see here in the U.S.
Daimler is poised to make Smart a success here in the states. They are doing everything possible to make sure it goes as planned.
Let’s just hope they can get small kinks like this out of the way first.
