Operating conditions:
Robserve the correct tyre pressure.
Do not carry any unnecessary weight in the vehicle
Remove the roof rack once you no longer need it.
Ra regularly serviced vehicles will contribute to environmental protection. You should therefore adhere to the service intervals.

Rall maintenance work should be carried
out at a qualified specialist workshop.

Avoid frequent, sudden acceleration and braking.
Monitor the vehicle’s energy consumption on.

Environmental note
Have a defective high-voltage battery disposed of in an environmentally responsible manner.

smart genuine parts

H Environmental note
Daimler AG also supplies reconditioned assemblies and parts which are of the same quality as new parts. For these, the same warranty applies as for new parts.
Airbags and seat belt tensioners, as well as control units and sensors for these restraint systems, may be installed in the following areas of your vehicle:

  • doors
  • Rdoor pillars
  • Rdoor sills
  • Rseats
  • Dashboard
  • Rinstrument cluster
    Rcentre console

Do not install accessories such as audio systems in these areas. Do not carry out repairs or welding. You could impair the operating efficiency of the restraint systems.
Have accessories retrofitted at a qualified specialist workshop.

Only smart genuine parts or parts of the same quality may be used. Additionally, only tyres, wheels and accessories approved for the specific type of vehicle may be used.
Always specify the vehicle identification number (VIN) when ordering smart genuine parts.
Using parts, tires, wheels or safety-relevant equipment not approved by smart could endanger the operating safety of the vehicle. Safety-relevant systems, e.g. the brake system, could malfunction.

smart tests genuine parts and conversion parts and accessories that have been specifically approved for your vehicle for their reliability, safety and suitability. Despite ongoing market research, smart is unable to assess other parts. smart therefore accepts no responsibility for the use of such parts in smart vehicles, even if they have been officially approved or independently approved by a testing center.
In Germany, certain parts are only officially approved for installation or modification if they comply with legal requirements. This also applies to some other countries. All genuine smart parts meet the approval requirements. The use of non-approved parts may invalidate the vehicle’s general operating permit.
The following situations will invalidate the operating permit:

  • The vehicle type changes from that stated in the vehicle’s operating permit, due to modifications.
  • ROther road users are likely to be endangered.
    REmissions or noise characteristics deteriorate.
