Smart – Free 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.

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.
