Items Which Are Not Covered:

(cont’d)

DAMAGE DUE TO ALTERATIONS: Alterations by changing or adding to the vehicle can adversely affect its performance, reliability and longevity and are not covered by this warranty.

DAMAGE TO GLASS: Glass breakage or scratches are not covered unless positive physical proof of a manufacturing defect can be established.

DAMAGE CAUSED BY REPAIR PARTS: Malfunctions caused by the use of other than

Genuine smart parts and accessories and damages or malfunctions resulting from poor fuel quality or from blending additional fuel additives other than those expressly approved for use in exceptional circumstances (see vehicle operator’s manual) by DVIUSA are not covered.

DAMAGE CAUSED BY IMPROPER BODY

REPAIRS: Damage or malfunctions caused by body repairs not performed in accordance with smart specified repair procedures or otherwise improperly performed are not covered by this warranty.

General

Our intention is to repair under warranty, without charge to you, anything that goes wrong with your vehicle during the warranty period which is our fault. All we ask is that you properly maintain and care for the vehicle and that you have warranty repairs performed by an authorized smart Center.

These receipts should be transferred to each subsequent owner of the vehicle. For your convenience, the Maintenance Booklet has been designed to incorporate the signature of your authorized smart Center upon completion of the required maintenance services.

Please note the difference between

“defects” and “damage” as used in the warranty. Defects are covered since we, the distributor are responsible. Conversely, we have no control over damage caused by such things as, but not limited to collision, misuse, and lack of or improper maintenance. Therefore, damage for whatever reason is not covered by the warranty.

It is the owner’s responsibility to maintain the vehicle according to the Maintenance

Schedule provided. All maintenance services must be accomplished to keep your warranty coverage valid. When requesting service or repair work under warranty, the owner must present to the authorized smart Center evidence that the periodic servicing requirements have been accomplished. Receipts covering completion of required servicing should be retained in the event a question arises concerning maintenance.

This signature is evidence of completion of the maintenance services and should be kept together with other receipts, repair orders and invoices.

If the owner has a warranty claim and can show through receipted invoices that the vehicle has received the required servicing, the authorized smart Center will perform the warranty work without charging for parts and labor. It is the responsibility of the owner to prove and the authorized smart Center to judge whether the required maintenance service has been performed.

DVIUSA’s obligation is limited to the authorization to exchange or repair at its option such parts which are acknowledged by it to be defective. In case of defective assemblies, Genuine smart Remanufactured Parts can be used in exchange instead of their repair. The replaced defective parts or assemblies shall become the property of

DVIUSA. Warranty repairs do not constitute an extension of the original warranty period for the vehicle or a part thereof.

smart New Vehicle Limited Warranty - Things You Should Know

17

Insurance Write-Off; or Repaired or Replaced Parts

Any vehicle which has been damaged to such an extent that the owner, insurer, financing institution or leasing company determined the vehicle to be a “total loss”,

“write off” or equivalent, is not covered by this warranty. This includes but is not limited to vehicles issued a “salvage”,

“scrap”, “dismantled” or similar title under any state’s law.

Body Repair Information

Due to the materials and assembly procedures used in the production of smart vehicles, it is strongly recommended that any paint work/body repairs be performed using Genuine smart parts by repair facilities which have been certified by DVIUSA as having the tools, equipment and training necessary to perform such repairs. DVIUSA has certified a network of body repair facilities which are qualified to perform both cosmetic and structural repairs to your vehicle.

Any parts repaired or replaced under an insurance claim or required as a result of events which are not covered under this warranty (see “Items Which Are Not Covered”, ( 컄 Page 14), for example, damages due to accidents, misuse, or negligence, and in either case, any subsequent consequential damage to the vehicle are not covered by this warranty.

While the vehicle owner may elect to have repairs (collision damage/paint repair work) performed by any automobile body repair establishment or individual, damage or malfunction caused by body repairs not performed in accordance with smart specified repair procedures are not covered by the smart New Vehicle Limited Warranty.

Paint and Other Appearance Items

Defects in paint, trim or other appearance items are normally taken care of during our new vehicle preparation or by the authorized smart Center during new vehicle inspection. We suggest that if you find any paint or appearance problems that you advise your authorized smart Center as soon as possible since deterioration due to use and exposure is not covered by the warranty.

Should your vehicle need paint work/body repair or if you have any questions please contact your authorized smart Center or call 1-800-762-7887.

Customer Repair Orders

Your servicing authorized smart Center will give you a copy of the Repair Order on all warranty repairs performed. Please keep this copy with your vehicle records.

The instructions in your Operator’s Manual regarding the care of paint, upholstery, trim items and convertible tops, as applicable, must be followed explicitly to maintain your warranty coverage.

General

The law requires your vehicle to conform to exhaust emission standards. To provide the best vehicle performance and lowest vehicle emissions, you are responsible to see that all recommended maintenance procedures detailed in the Maintenance Booklet are performed at the specified times and mileages. The emission control warranty does not cover failures due solely to owner abuse or lack of proper maintenance.

For detailed information concerning emission control system maintenance, please refer to your Maintenance Booklet. If you should desire further information concerning tune-up specifications or emission control system maintenance jobs, we recommend obtaining maintenance related literature. Such literature is available from either your authorized smart Center or directly from Daimler Vehicle Innovations

USA LLC.

More frequent maintenance may be needed for vehicles under severe operating conditions such as dusty areas, very short trip driving or trailer towing.

While maintenance service can be performed by any qualified service outlet, we recommend that all maintenance services be performed by your authorized smart

Center who is equipped with the tools, instruments, and literature necessary for correct and systematic performance of these services. Although warranty obligations are not dependent upon the use of any particular brand of replacement parts and you may elect to use non-Genuine smart parts for replacement purposes, we recommend the use of Genuine smart parts for service and repairs, since they have been made according to the manufacturer’s specifications. It is also important to use only fuels and lubricants meeting factory specifications, since the emission systems warranty does not cover repair or replacement of parts necessitated by failure of such items.

Emission Systems Warranty (Federal)

19

General

In accordance with the requirements of the

Federal Clean Air Act as amended, Daimler

Vehicle Innovations USA LLC warrants to the original and each subsequent owner of a new smart vehicle that:

This Warranty Does Not Apply To:

1. The repair or replacement of warranted parts which are scheduled to be replaced prior to 80,000 miles. These parts are no longer covered once they have been replaced at the first required replacement interval during a regular maintenance service.

(1) the vehicle was designed, built and equipped so as to conform, at the time of sale to the original owner, with the then applicable regulations issued by the Federal Environmental Protection Agency under authority of the Federal Clean Air

Act as amended; and

2. Any vehicle on which the odometer mileage has been altered and the vehicle’s actual mileage cannot be readily determined.

3. Loss of time, inconvenience, loss of the use of the vehicle or similar incidental or consequential damages.

(2) the vehicle is free from defects in materials and workmanship at the time of sale which would cause it not to conform with those regulations within a period of two years or 24,000 miles from the date of initial operation of the vehicle, whichever occurs first; and

(3) is free from defects in material and workmanship in specific emission related parts as specified in the lists shown on

( 컄 Page 26) which would cause them not to conform with those requirements for a period of 8 years or 80,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

This warranty will be performed by any authorized smart Center of the owner’s choice - repairing, replacing or adjusting at the authorized smart Center’s discretion, upon delivery of the vehicle to the authorized smart Center’s place of business without charge for parts and labor

(including diagnosis), using Genuine smart parts to assure compliance with applicable regulations. Parts replaced under this warranty become the property of the warrantor.

This warranty is available on a vehicle purchased in the United States or in any U.S. possession governed by U.S. law.

In all other countries, defective parts will be repaired or replaced free of charge only in accordance with the terms and limitations of the warranty for new smart vehicles in effect at the time in such countries.

See ( 컄 Page 26) for components covered by this warranty.

Emission Performance Warranty (Federal) - Things You Should Know

21

General

You may present a claim under this warranty immediately after your vehicle has failed an EPA approved emission short test if, as a result of that failure, you are required by law to repair the vehicle to avoid the imposition of a penalty or sanction. You do not need to suffer the loss of the right to use the vehicle, pay a fine, or incur repair expenses before bringing this claim.

Your warranty claim may be presented to any authorized smart Center of your choice in the USA or its territories.

Your authorized smart Center is required by law to honor your claim if such notice of denial is not received by you within said time period.

You may obtain further information concerning the emission performance warranty or report violations of the terms of the Emission Performance Warranty by contacting the Director, Field Operation and Support Division (EN-397F), Environmental Protection Agency, 401 “M” Street,

SW., Washington, D.C. 20460.

The authorized smart Center will honor or deny your claim within a reasonable time not to exceed 30 days, from the time at which your vehicle is initially presented for repair or within any time period specified by local, State or Federal Law, whichever is shorter, except when a delay is caused by events not attributable to DVIUSA or your authorized smart Center. You will be notified in writing by your authorized smart

Center of the reason for any denial of your claim.

NOTE: The Emission Performance Warranty is required by Federal Law, and is effective only to the extent required by that law.

To the extent the underlying law is suspended or amended, this Warranty is automatically altered in the same manner, without further notice.

Daimler Vehicle Innovations USA LLC

(DVIUSA) warrants to the original and each subsequent owner of a new smart vehicle that:

For the remainder of the 8 years or 80,000 miles the authorized smart Center will correct only those deficiencies directly related to the specified components in the attached list which have been installed in or on the vehicle for the sole or primary purpose of reducing vehicle emissions and that were not in general use prior to Model

Year 1968.

a. if the vehicle is maintained and operated in accordance with DVIUSA’s written instructions for required maintenance and use, and b. if the vehicle fails to conform at any time during 8 years or 80,000 miles, whichever first occurs, to the applicable emission standards as ascertained by an EPAapproved emission short test, and c. if such non-conformity results or will result in the vehicle owner having to bear any penalty or other sanction (including the denial of the right to use the vehicle) under local, State or Federal law, then any authorized smart Center during the first

24 months or 24,000 miles will make any repairs or replacements necessary to specified systems/components to correct the non-conformity or so that the vehicle will pass the smog check test at no charge for parts and labor (including diagnosis).

Emission Systems Warranty (Federal)

23

Parts replaced under this warranty become the property of the warrantor. The warranty period starts on the date the vehicle is delivered to the first retail purchaser or put into service as an authorized smart

Center demonstrator or DVIUSA, MBUSI or

MBRDNA company vehicle.

Use of replacement parts which are not of equivalent quality and design may impair the effectiveness of the emission control systems.

The emission control system of your new smart vehicle was designed, built and tested using Genuine smart parts and the vehicle is certified as being in conformity with Federal emission control regulations and requirements. Accordingly, it is recommended that any replacement parts used for maintenance, repair or replacement of emission related components be Genuine smart Parts, including Genuine smart

Remanufactured Parts.

The owner may elect to have maintenance, replacement or repair of the emission control devices and systems performed by any automotive repair establishment or individual, and may elect to use other than

Genuine smart Parts, including Genuine smart Remanufactured Parts for such maintenance, replacement or repair without invalidating this warranty; the cost of such service or parts, however, will not be covered under the warranty except in the case of an emergency.

If other than Genuine smart Parts, including Genuine smart Remanufactured Parts are being used for maintenance, replacement or repair of components affecting emission control, the owner should obtain assurances that such parts are warranted by their manufacturer to be equivalent to

Genuine smart parts in performance and durability.

DVIUSA, however, assumes no liability under this warranty with respect to parts other than Genuine smart Parts, including

Genuine smart Remanufactured Parts except for consequential damage to a nonsmart warranted part caused by a failure of a smart part. However, the use of nonsmart replacement parts does not invalidate the warranty on other components unless non-smart parts cause damage to warranted parts.

DVIUSA may deny an emission performance warranty claim if the failure of a part is the result of:

a. non-compliance with the written instructions for required maintenance and use. These written instructions, including time and mileage intervals at which maintenance is to be performed may be found in the Maintenance Booklet and Operator’s

Manual provided with your vehicle. You are advised to perform all recommended maintenance or repairs on your new smart vehicle. DVIUSA may deny a warranty claim if your failure to perform the required maintenance resulted in the failure of the warranted part in question. Receipts and service records covering the performance of regular maintenance should be retained in the event questions arise concerning maintenance. The receipts and service records should be transferred to each subsequent owner of this vehicle.

c. using non-EPA certified replacement parts in the maintenance or repair of the vehicle which ultimately proved to be defective in material or workmanship or not equivalent from an emission standpoint to the original equipment part and the owner is unable to prove otherwise.

Daimler Vehicle Innovations USA LLC may deny an emission related warranty claim if it can establish that the failure or the malfunction of an emission control system part results directly from the use of:

R

Gasoline engines non-premium low octane gasoline with an anti-knock index of below 91 b. vehicle abuse or maintenance performed in such a manner that an emission component was improperly installed or adjusted substantially outside the manufacturer’s specifications or which resulted in removing or rendering inoperative any component affecting the vehicle’s emissions.

Emission Systems Warranty (Federal)

25

This Warranty Does Not Cover:

a. Malfunctions in any part caused by any of the following: misuse, improper adjustments, modification, alteration, tampering, disconnection, improper or inadequate maintenance, or use of leaded gasoline for catalyst equipped vehicles.

In all other countries, defective parts will be repaired or replaced free of charge only in accordance with the terms and limitations of the warranty for new smart vehicles in effect at the time in such countries.

b. Damage resulting from accident, acts of nature or other events beyond the control of DVIUSA.

c. The repair or replacement of warranted parts which are scheduled for replacement prior to 80,000 miles once these have been replaced at the first replacement interval as part of regular maintenance service.

d. Loss of time, inconvenience, loss of use of the vehicle, or other incidental or consequential damages.

e. Any vehicle on which the odometer mileage has been altered so that the vehicle’s actual mileage cannot be determined.

Things You Should Know

Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities:

As the vehicle owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance listed in your Maintenance Booklet. DVIUSA recommends that you retain all receipts covering maintenance on your vehicle, but DVIUSA cannot deny emission control system warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your failure to ensure the performance of all required maintenance.

You are responsible for presenting your smart vehicle to an authorized smart Center as soon as a problem exists. The warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable amount of time, not to exceed

30 days.

As the vehicle owner, you should also be aware that DVIUSA may deny you warranty coverage if your vehicle or a part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper maintenance or unapproved modifications.

Emission Control System Warranty

31

AZ, CA, CT, MA, MD, ME, NJ, OR, PA, RI, VT and WA

General

Daimler Vehicle Innovations USA LLC

(DVIUSA) warrants to the original and each subsequent owner of a 2012 smart vehicle which is first sold by an authorized smart

Center in Arizona, California, Connecticut,

Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island,

Vermont and Washington that:

DVIUSA further warrants that: a. if the vehicle is maintained and operated in accordance with DVIUSA’s written instructions for required maintenance and use, and

(1) such vehicle is free from defects in material and workmanship which would cause it to fail to conform with requirements of the California Air Resources

Board (CARB) or to fail to pass a smog check test for a period of use of 3 years or

50,000 miles, whichever first occurs; and b. if a part is defective during 3 years or

50,000 miles, whichever first occurs, which causes the vehicle not to conform to the applicable CARB requirement or to fail a smog check test, or c. if an emission-related part covered by the 7 year or 70,000 mile, whichever first occurs, warranty term is defective during the warranty period,

(2) if any part which affects any regulated emission from your vehicle is defective during 3 years or 50,000 miles, whichever first occurs, the part will be repaired or replaced; and then any authorized smart Center of the owner’s choice will make any adjustments, repairs or replacements (including diagnosis) necessary to correct the defect or so that the vehicle will pass the smog check test at no charge for parts, labor or diagnosis.

(3) is free from defects in material and workmanship in specific emission related parts as specified in the attached list which would cause them not to conform with those requirements for a period of use of 7 years or 70,000 miles, whichever first occurs.

If your vehicle is between 3 to 8 years old and has been driven less than 80,000 miles, then your vehicle may be eligible for additional coverage under the Federal Emissions Warranty.

AZ, CA, CT, MA, MD, ME, NJ, OR, PA, RI, VT and WA

These warranty provisions shall begin on the date the vehicle is delivered to the first retail purchaser or, if the vehicle is first placed in service as a retail demonstrator or DVIUSA, MBUSI or MBRDNA company vehicle prior to sale at retail, on the date the vehicle is first placed in such service.

The emission control system of your new smart vehicle was designed, built and tested using Genuine smart parts and the vehicle is certified as being in conformity with Federal, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New

Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode

Island, Vermont and Washington emission control regulations and requirements.

Accordingly, it is recommended that any replacement parts used for maintenance, repair or replacement of emission related components be Genuine smart Parts, including Genuine smart Remanufactured

Parts.

Use of replacement parts which are not of equivalent quality and design may impair the effectiveness of the emission control systems. If other than Genuine smart Parts, including Genuine smart Remanufactured

Parts are being used for maintenance, replacement or repair of components affecting emission control, the owner should obtain assurances that such parts are warranted by their manufacturer to be equivalent to Genuine smart parts in performance and durability.

DVIUSA, however, assumes no liability under this warranty with respect to parts other than Genuine smart Parts, including

Genuine smart Remanufactured Parts except for consequential damage to a nonsmart warranted part caused by a failure of a smart part. However, the use of nonsmart replacement parts does not invalidate the warranty on other components unless non-smart parts cause damage to warranted parts.

The owner may elect to have maintenance, replacement or repair of the emission control devices and systems performed by any automotive repair establishment or individual, and may elect to use other than

Genuine smart Parts, including Genuine smart Remanufactured Parts for such maintenance, replacement or repair without invalidating this warranty; the cost of such service or parts, however, will not be covered under the warranty except in the case of an emergency.

Emission Control System Warranty

33

AZ, CA, CT, MA, MD, ME, NJ, OR, PA, RI, VT and WA

Repairs covered by this warranty will be performed by any authorized smart Center at its place of business with no charge for parts or labor (including diagnosis), using

Genuine smart Parts, including Genuine smart Remanufactured Parts for any part covered by this warranty.

In the case of an emergency, when and where an authorized smart Center is not available, repairs may be performed at any available service establishment or by the owner using any replacement part. The non-availability of a replacement part for warranty repair or a repair not completed within 30 days constitutes an emergency.

DVIUSA will reimburse the owner for such repairs (including labor and diagnosis) that are covered under this warranty. Such reimbursement shall not exceed DVIUSA suggested retail prices for warranted parts replaced and labor charges based on

DVIUSA recommended time allowances for warranty repairs at a geographically appropriate hourly labor rate. Replaced parts and paid invoices must be presented at an authorized smart Center as a condition of reimbursement for emergency repairs not performed at an authorized smart Center. Parts replaced under this warranty become the property of the warrantor.

The enclosed list sets forth some of the emission related components covered by the emission control system defects warranty. You are advised to perform all recommended maintenance or repairs on your new smart vehicle. DVIUSA will not deny an emissions system warranty claim solely because you have no record of maintenance; however, you are responsible for the performance of the required maintenance. DVIUSA may deny a warranty claim if your failure to perform the required maintenance resulted in the failure of a warranted part. Receipts and service records covering the performance of regular maintenance should be retained in the event questions arise concerning maintenance.

The receipts and service records should be transferred to each subsequent owner of this vehicle.

AZ, CA, CT, MA, MD, ME, NJ, OR, PA, RI, VT and WA

Daimler Vehicle Innovations USA LLC may deny an emission related claim if it can establish that the failure or the malfunction of an emission control system part results directly from the use of non-premium low octane fuel in the engine (i.e. fuel with an anti-knock index of below 91 as displayed on the fuel pump).

4. The repair or replacement of warranted parts which are scheduled to be replaced prior to 50,000 miles once these have been replaced at the first replacement interval during a regular maintenance service.

5. Incidental or consequential damages such as loss of time, inconvenience, or loss of use of the vehicle.

What is not covered by the Emission Warranty

This warranty does not cover:

1. The repair or replacement of any “warranted part” otherwise eligible for warranty coverage shall be excluded from such warranty coverage if the vehicle or engine manufacturer demonstrates that the vehicle or engine has been abused, neglected or improperly maintained, and that such abuse, neglect, or improper maintenance was the direct cause of the need for the repair or replacement of the part.

6. Any vehicle on which the odometer mileage has been altered so that the vehicle’s actual mileage cannot be determined.

2. Malfunctions in any part caused by any of the following: improper adjustments except for those done by an authorized smart Center during warranty service work, modification, alteration, tampering, disconnection, or use of leaded gasoline

(for catalyst equipped vehicles).

3. Damage resulting from accident, acts of nature or other events beyond the control of DVIUSA.

Emission Control System Warranty

AZ, CA, CT, MA, MD, ME, NJ, OR, PA, RI, VT and WA

This warranty is applicable to new vehicles which are first sold by an authorized smart

Center in the States of Arizona, California,

Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oregon, Pennsylvania,

Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington. In all other states or countries, defective parts will be repaired or replaced in accordance with the terms and limitations of the warranty applicable to new smart vehicles in effect at the time in such states or countries.

You may present a claim under the performance warranty immediately after your vehicle has failed a smog check test. You do not need to suffer the loss of the right to use the vehicle, pay a fine, or incur repair expenses before bringing this claim.

After the 3 year/50,000 mile performance warranty period has passed, a smog check test failure due to a defect in a part which is warranted for 7 years/70,000 miles, is covered.

You will be notified in writing by your authorized smart Center of the reasons for any denial of your claim.

Your authorized smart Center is required by law to honor your claim if such notice of denial is not received by you within said time period.

Warranty Enforcement Laws (Lemon Laws)

37

Laws in many states and federal law permit owners and/or lessees to obtain a replacement vehicle or a refund of the purchase or lease price under certain circumstances.

The provisions of these laws vary from state to state and vary from the federal law. To the extent allowed or not prohibited by applicable law, Daimler Verhicle Innovations

USA LLC requires that you first provide us with direct written notification of any alleged unrepaired defect or malfunction, or any other dissatisfaction you have experienced with your vehicle so that we have the opportunity to cure the problem or dissatisfaction ourselves. Giving DVIUSA itself this direct notice and opportunity to cure enables us to supplement prior efforts by our authorized smart Center so any ongoing problem can be resolved or the dissatisfaction addressed by us. In states that have not enacted Lemon Laws, we also require, without constituting any liability beyond the smart new vehicle warranty, that you give us direct written notice of any service difficulty you have experienced. Written notifications, either required under an applicable

Lemon Law or other written notifications should be sent to us, not one of our authorized smart Center, at Daimler Verhicle Innovations USA LLC, Customer Assistance

Center, One Mercedes Drive, Montvale, New Jersey, 07645-0350.
