"I asked a guy that has some videos of his 2016 Smart posted on YouTube.  He said he had the problem, but his dealer fixed it.  Said all they had to do is recalibrate it.  So maybe it all depends on the dealer.  He said since the…"

"I would imagine this issue could pass for lemon law in many states.  Here in Pennsylvania, if the vehicle is in for repair too long, or the same issue is not fixed in three attempts, it can be taken to court under the lemon law.  This will…"

"This is going to really lower the customer satisfaction rating with Consumer Reports on the new Smart.  It really sucks.  I love the looks of the new car, but just nervous to buy one now.  "

"Add me to the list I have a 2016 smart prime with fuel tank capacity problems. I can let my car get down to .7 of a gallon remaining in the tank, but can only pump approximately 5 gallons of gas into it. The tank capacity should be at least 7.7 gal.…"

" Good to know, but I wasn't planning on running it to empty, just down to roughly a gallon left (so an extra forty to fifty miles). "

"Just be aware that - at least in our case - the engine did not hiccup or sputter as is common in other vehicles. We made a right hand turn and suddenly everything died! "

"Cool, I have been meaning to do this test but haven't had the time.  This tells me that the float is not positioned correctly in the tank.  It is reading as 1.3 gallons when there is still 3.7 gallons left in the tank.  It is…"
