The Penske Automotive Group,Inc,which is the national importer and distributor of Smart in the USA is in serious financial difficulty...Its credit rating has been lowered to junk status and it just announced it is suspending its stock dividend...Penske also owns Smart dealerships( including the one in Arizona) as well as Mercedes dealerships...All auto businesses are in trouble due to reduction in sales...I helped Penske by buying my Smart last Saturday...Let us all hope that Penske survives and Smarts continue to be imported...

Back on Feb. 3rd when this was first posted Penske (PAG) stock was going for $7.27 per share. Today March 25th it closes at $9.96 per share. I think we're safe for now
Moody's has downgraded Penske debt rating further into junk status this week....
I hope Penske turns out OK. I imagine that MB would continue to import the smart even if Penske can't because as far as I understand the smart counts twards MBs CAFE numbers.
