The Euro version of the Smart Fortwo has been recalled due to improperly affixed lockrings that were causing steering problems. Only 1,650 cars were affected, but the country or countries in question weren't named. There were no accidents or injuries because of the problem. In spite of Smart's well-publicized bumpy ride and continual losses since its introduction nine years ago, Dieter Zetsche, head of DaimlerChrysler, said the brand expects to break even this year.
