I'm also in Manhattan, also parked in garage. four years with previous smart and never had the "bonnet" come loose. four months with the new one and no issues there.
guess the collective wisdom at this point is to do a quick walk around when you pick up the car each time, check for obvious low tire pressure, loose service flap, I sometimes have to move my mirrors back out, etc.
Hi dennyrex, Thanks for the advice! Yeah, I don't mind the mirrors being moved so much, at least I feel they are making an effort not to hit anything. Glad to see another local. I'm on the West side and see many Smarts on the streets. Do you take advantage of the Icon parking deal?
