RECALL: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2016 smart fortwo vehicles
Report Receipt Date: JUL 16, 2017
NHTSA Campaign Number: 17V448000
Component(s): PARKING BRAKE
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,061

JUNE 2017 -- Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2016 smart fortwo vehicles. In these vehicles, the lock nut that secures the parking brake cable to the parking brake lever may loosen over time, resulting in increased parking brake lever travel before the parking brake engages. As the parking brake lever travel increases, the holding force may decrease to a point where the vehicle is no longer safely secured in all parking situations, allowing the vehicle to unexpectedly move when parked on a slope, increasing the risk of a crash.
MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the parking brake cable lock nut, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early September 2017. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
