someone on here had the engine bay insulation come loose and start a fire so the got a piece of metal and secured it to the firewall.

Would you still do the recall even if you put in a metal bar and the insulation is staying secure to the firewall.

I would not take my car back to a smart dealer for any reason.

I haven't taken mine back for the recall, because I secured the insulation both front and rear with steel strapping.
For two weeks, I had posted pictures of my repair. I had to remove them due to running out of storage on the site.
