Hi All, Hubby and I just got our 2009 Smart Passion Cabrio and are having a blast driving it around. For all you in Wisconsin, how is it to drive them in the snow?... Not our primary car so can sit in the garage if we have to. Got it to tow 4 down behind our RV... Any one do this? Who did your tow equipment? Anyone meeting around the state to chat?
Yup, we are newbies in Wisconsin with lots of ????
I would like any information this community can provide. yesterday the car started to do something very weird. When the car is turned off and the radio is also turned off, the car crackles I can feel it through the speakers. It is very loud and sounds like electrical interference. I am concerned about parking in our attached garage should the car start on fire.
I am very disappointed in the service or lack of it that we get. I live in Green Bay so going to Madison is a whole day out of my calender. I am in sales so this is more that a long drive and tank of gas. Luckily the Cadillac dealer can change my oil in Green Bay.
What really has me ticked off is the fact that last summer I had a service issue. My check engine light went on. When I called the Mercedes dealer in Appleton, I was informed that their computers could not talk to the SmartCar programs and do a diagnostic! I would have to go to Madison for that service. Then I asked what would happen if it was something serious and broke down on my trip to Madison. Who would be towing me the rest of the way? What a part was unavailable and I had to stay over night? Needless to say I did not get a satisfactory answer.
I think the least Smart could do I, is outfit a tech with a laptop that could hook into the Mercedes system. They could send him around the state on pre-set days so at least we could get a check-up!
Well this is looking very quiet around here, For those of you who havent heard, We are around 1 month away from the 2012 Midwest rally in Red Wing MN, It is almost in WI
Details here http://www.smartusainsider.com/events/jimvw57 and here
In case anyone who was interested but missed there chance at the Dells, I will be selling my hats and scarfs at the Venetian Festival this weekend in Lake Geneva.
I know some folks may have been on the fence about getting something but it was the wrong season. Well Fall is just around the corner and Rather than having just a few items I will have my entire inventory at this event. Find me along the lakefront in the park by the library.
And yes LT N FLFY will be there too. Just off on some side street after I unload
Does anyone want to join the parade?
Who is up for a parade?
Someone who saw the group in the dells is asking is any smarties want to join the parade in Black Earth on August 14th
Were any members at the Midwest Rally in the Wis. Dells?
Does this group have a "Next Event"?
There is a weekly "Car Show" right off I-94 at Hwy "T" at a german resturant complete with outdoor entertainment and food;
If anyone would like to follow this link up and select a date I will attend!
GOOD NEWS WISCONSIN!!!!
With the change of smart distribution WI has been left lacking for a dealer we could send folks to to get a gas sipping fun to drive car.
The wait is almost over.
See this thread for details
