Since the recall dates from last July, I'm surprised M-B hasn't put out a list of the affected VINs. :)

Owners of affected cars should have been contacted, but if you want to be sure a great tool is to use NHTSA's SafeCar Recall VIN lookup website to see if your smart is affected or has other outstanding recalls.

Additionally, you can also check with the customer hotline to see if your smart is under the recall notice.
