Increase in smarts in Tucson, Az and surrounding areas

I have noticed an increase in the number of smarts in my area.  It used to be a week between single sightings and now I see at least two a day.  I was visiting the town of Green Valley, Az and saw two while there.  That makes at least three in that area I am aware of.  The amazing part of this is that the nearest dealers are 90 miles from here and 120 from Green Valley.  When MB chose to add a second dealer in AZ the original was in Chandler and they added one to Scottsdale a sister city.  It…See More

"I have a 2008 Passion, going on 30,000 miles only complaint is the crazed roof.  Since this is a much complained of item on other forums, really can't understand MB's lack of action on this subject."

Alan, 

One of my customers let me test drive her Smart and I fell in love with it. She was in a crash with her first Smart, the car was totaled but nether she nor her passenger were harmed...when she got her insurance check she went right out and bought another.

Hi Alan,  Fran Butzberger left a comment on my page re Smart and break away switch.  Maybe I should have replied here.  We had all our installation done in Mesa, Arizona at Robert Christ RV who has done lots of Smart towing installs.  They did a great job.  Your Smart is the same color as mine--red/grey.  I've loved driving this car since 2008 and we have towed it everywhere.  Have fun and Merry Christmas.  Fran

Had to have a computer overhaul.  No fun without computer.  Have you heard anything new on the Tucson MB dealership?

Hi Alan - I am the person that always organized everything...I have a number of email addresses and would send out emails but it seemed like everyone lost interest in meeting...We would have just a couple of people joining us and it was the same each time.  I tried for weekend meetings usually because people would work - Some were breakfast or lunch meets/greets.
