Smart – Common Problems

The most common Smart problems

Smart-common-problems

Problems solved during Smart’s recalls do not usually determine the reliability of the vehicle itself. Even the common-recalled model can be a good choice and vice versa.

However, it is good to be informed for what problems the manufacturer has recalled most often. At least to know whether the defect was fixed by the previous owner, when buying a second-hand car. You should check your vehicle VIN with your nearest Smart dealer using our special page.



If you wish to know more about possible problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
