The anchorage for the rear seat backrest may not be sufficiently resistant. In the event of a head-on crash, heavy objects in the boot may put stress on the rear seat backrest, the anchorage could detach from the body and the backrest could fold forward. This may cause objects in the boot to hit the passengers or passengers could be injured by the folding backrest seat.
The recall concerns vehicles which have been produced between IX. 2014 – XII. 2015

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Smart dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
Check the vehicle's history
This notification is purely informative for the vehicle type you have selected. As these deficiencies often relate to specific components (engine type, bodywork, equipment), the recall may not apply to all vehicles of this type. First published in the Weekly overview reports of RAPEX
UK car-owners 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.
