Smart – VIN Check for Recalls


VIN Check for Smart Recalls

Four out of five people who are interested in a used car don’t ask if the car they are about to buy has been subject to a manufacturer recall.

With four in ten unrepaired recalled vehicles on the UK’s roads, safety must be a priority for every used car buyer. Manufacturers usually offer an unlimited time for those repairs, meaning that second or third Smart owner can still get a recalled vehicle fixed at no charge. Let’s check on if the car you are interested in (or that you have already purchased) has all the recalls resolved.

Smart UK VIN Check : If you like to know more about a specific used Smart vehicle (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollbacks, repairs, etc.) then we suggest going to HPI-Check service.

With the UK-registered cars you can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.



If you not sure there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a Smart dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer.

* You can copy the sample request email text below.

Hello,

I am writing a request to verify the VIN code of my vehicle (see below). I would like to know if any Recall or Technical Service Bulletin has been issued in the past.

[Your Name]

[Vehicle VIN Code]*

* The VIN code is a unique identification number that is embossed on the body of the car and shown on the ID card. It is made up of a unique combination of 17 letters and numbers.
