I am seriously considering getting a smart electric drive. Two general areas of concern have thus far caused me to hold off in doing so. The first is the range of the car. The second is the fact that I live in the Northeast where it is cold and snowy for half the year which could further affect the usability and range of the car. I drove one and really loved it! Undecided about what to do.....

Just some good advice if you’re single from the smart electric drive. Are you a match? http://smart.cr/electricurious

Yes!  I'm Electrocurious!

Let's play Worst Case Scenario for a minute......

I got in a wreck with my Smart ED, so this isn't a warranty-paid-for smiley face scenario.  I gotta buy replacement parts, at retail, from my dealer, the only source for parts and HE knows it.  I need these parts destroyed in the accident:

Main Battery pack - Mine's broken in half requiring total replacement - $put the dealer retail price here.

Main computer - smoke came out of it and it's fried - $put the dealer retail price here.

Main drive motor assembly, the whole case is broken, gearbox and all - $put the dealer retail price here.

When I ask for these parts at my dealer's parts counter, I get no answer and they act funny, as if they're being told never to tell us what the big parts cost.....Not sure why....

Thanks for your reply.  Just how much it will cost for the parts is fine.  At $155/hour for the parts changer, we can estimate how much that would cost even more.....

Thanks!

My message is a hypothetical situation for a Smart ED owner.  There are none, here, that I know of.  I don't want to argue with someone on the phone, in secret.  I think those of us who own your cars, and those who are thinking about buying and ED, maybe on a trade, need to know the truth about ED costs of ownership.  Common parts for the Passion are outrageously priced, such as my $1086 fuel pump replacement a couple of years ago.  Let's come clean on prices for an even more specialized Smart made in tiny quantities.

What we REALLY want is the 800cc DIESEL with a Japanese-like, LONG (100K, 10 year) warranty to remove our apprehension earned by the brand in our experiences....thousands of dollars to replace a head gasket, for instance, on a tiny, 3-cyl forklift engine.  It's insane what parts cost for this little pig...nearly as insane as the labor charged just to update the buggy software, which should always be FREE.  We didn't write the buggy software.  Why must WE pay for YOUR screwups?

Thank you, but this concerns all of us.  Let's keep it where all of us can see your answers without me having to post it, please.
