Additional information:

Among the six (6) recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC (“MBUSA”) has recalled an estimated 5,061 model year 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.

According to the NHTSA, 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.
