Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,200 model-year 2016 Smart ForTwo microcars
The Problem: The horizontal headlight adjustment mechanism may not have been properly sealed off to prevent future adjustment. This could allow the headlight to be adjusted outside of design specifications, reducing the driver's visibility and potentially blinding oncoming drivers, which increases the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Dealers will install the correct sealing caps to prevent the headlights from being adjusted horizontally for free.
