I just called Smart about the recall and was told they didn't know anything about a transmission recall. They also said that all affected owners have been notified about the paint recall.

there is also a recall that Smart has not talked about. This recall is based on the transmission. If you have one of the first Smart cars in this country, contact your Smart representative about the Smart car transmission recall. thankfully, my smart car is fine. My friends had to be taken in. He didn't even know there was a recall until it happened to him. His shifting locked up on him when shifting from Park to Drive. Everybody should call Smart and tell everybody about this recall so it won't happen to them.

Hi Mary Ann. While the paint problem has been discussed in this and other forums -- and smart has been proactively notifying owners for a couple weeks -- the official notice for a formal recall from NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigations came out last Friday (Aug. 22).

The print version of the notice on can be found here.

The recall is Smart USA recall campaign number 0808-001. It affects Smarts built/sold from April-June 2008.
You can call Mr. Eric Lannon at 248-648-2454. I got this info at the NHTSA web site. Hope yours is not one of the ones recalled.

From the article at - "The recall only affects 43 units". Chances are pretty good you won't hear from smart.
