DaimlerChrysler recalls 1,650 Smart cars

The German-US automaker DaimlerChrysler said Tuesday it was recalling 1,650 Smart ForTwo minicars worldwide to check for steering problems.
The problems stem from the mounting of a part supplied by the US group Delphi, and could cause drivers to lose control of their cars, a spokesman said.
The recall concerns vehicles sold since April, he added.
Smart cars have not sold well since they were introduced in 1998 and DaimlerChrysler launched a second generation late last year in an attempt to save the ultra-compact car.
