The German-US auto giant DaimlerChrysler has recalled 1,650 of its ultra-compact Smart cars because of a steering defect, a company spokesman said on Friday.
Owing to faulty assembly of one of the steering components, the cars could become unsteerable in the worst case scenario, spokesman Wolfgang Zanker said.
The faulty parts were supplied by US car parts maker Delphi.
All of the customers affected had been successfully contacted and provided with a replacement car, so that no faulty vehicles were on the road, the spokesman said.
The model concerned was the two-seater “Smart for two,” which has been on the market since April and was seen by Smart as the model to drive it out of loss and back into profit.
