Smart Fortwo and Forfour recall, find your vehicle ID

If you have a 2016 Smart Fortwo & Forfour built from 01/04/2016 to 30/04/2016, then there is a chance that yours could be affected by a recall.


There are only 49 units in all being recalled because of an issue that could cause the vehicle to roll away. If you call your local dealer all you have to do is quote the reference number SRS1601.

However, if you wish to check your Smart Fortwo and Forfour vehicle ID to see if you have an affected model, then they range from WME4530422Y076464 to WME4534422K119853.

The reason these are being recalled is because of the bowden cable that is connected to the gear selector could become loose, and if this were to happen, then it may stop the car from engaging or disengaged into park. When you book an appointment to take it to your nearest dealer, they will check the connection of the cable, and rework if required.
