Mercedes-Benz USA is recalling over 42,000 2008-2009 smart fortwo cabrio and fortwo coupe vehicles.
The company says that the rear insulation mat found in the engine compartment can deform, loosen, or deteroriate over time. This can increase the risk of a fire if the mat comes into contact with hot exhaust system components.
Company representatives will be notifying owners of the issue, and dealers will replace the rear insulation mat free of charge. The recall is expected to start in July.
Consumers can contact Mercedes-Benz USA customer service for more information by calling 1-800-367-6372.
