Alarm goes off for no reason

Posted on June 14, 2009 at 1:11pm 12 Comments

Last night, a little after ten, as we were about to get ready for bed, we heard the Smart alarm go off in the garage. I had left the top down and the windows down. The roof rails were still in place. I had locked the car when we left it that way earlier in the day. My husband went into the garage to see if anything or anybody was disturbing the car. He couldn't find anything wrong. He came back into the house and a few minutes later, it sounded again. This time I unlocked the car, thinking that… Continue

Many Smarts for Sale

Posted on June 7, 2009 at 7:57am 3 Comments

My husband and I rode through the lot of Smart of Cary, NC yesterday because they had let me know that they had a lot of Smarts for sale. What a treat to see so many Smarts -- all colors and styles waiting for new owners. They had a great selection. If anyone is tired of waiting, or if anyone is considering buying a Smart, Cary, NC is the place to go!!!

London Smart Cars

Posted on March 26, 2009 at 8:10pm 2 Comments

Hello all! My husband and I just returned from a 5 night stay in London, England. We saw so many Smart cars there. On the way to Heathrow Airport this morning from our hotel located just behind Buckingham Palace, I counted 14 Smart cars on the road!!!! So glad they've made it to the States. Also saw a car even smaller than a Smart. It's called a (and I'm not making this up) Gee Whiz -- it's electric and narrower than a Smart. Must be awful crowded when two people are riding!!

Top Down Weather -- Hooray

Posted on February 8, 2009 at 4:17pm 3 Comments

Last Tuesday night it snowed in Raleigh, NC. On Wednesday and Thursday, it didn't get out of the 30's and the nighttime lows were in the teens. Finally on Friday it warmed up into the low 50's. Yesterday (Saturday) it was in the upper 60's. I put the top back on my rally red/silver cabrio to go to the grocery store. Didn't bother to take the roof rails off.

Today, it got into the lower 70's. My husband and I took the rails off and just spent 2 hours riding around town. Wow, I'm ready… Continue

Foglamps good for searching out black ice

Posted on January 22, 2009 at 9:16am 2 Comments

We are recovering from a six inch snow fall with temperatures just warm enough following to melt snow on roads and create black ice. This morning, I drove my new Smart with foglamps for the first time since the snow. It was still mostly dark when I left for work, and I used my foglamps to help illuminate the road. Very, very helpful in seeing the ice.

I highly recommend the foglamps, especially if you have bad roads to travel in "iffy" conditions and poor light.

I am very happy for you that you love your smart car. I love mine also but still wouldn't want it to be the only car we have. As I said my little smart is just great for running around town, for trips I want more comfort.
