"I have been disappointed with the gas mileage on my Brabus. I am getting around 34 mpg around town and close to 40 on the highway.
I thought the dealer in St. Charles was much better than Loeber Motors."
"I believe we have all been busy searching for a place to get our Brabi serviced following the Penske meltdown. Pothole last winter caused $2400 damage on mine and I was at the Kia dealer's mercy to fix it. No snow/winter here in MN this…"
"Well, it was $663 total.... they conveniently charged me shipping too, I thought that was a nice touch. Then they refused to install my new tires, so I had to have it towed to a tire store to get them mounted."
"I bent a rear Bsmart wheel within a month of my purchase date - but I had purchased the wheel insurance so it was replaced at no charge. That would have been near $600 per wheel!! My biggest issure is getting less than 30 mpg! what's up with…"
I love car shows and am looking forward to being in some with my Orphan Annie.
In the past I've owned a General Lee Double and a Herbie The Lovebug Double. Also had many muscle cars. I ride a Honda Shadow Spirit and drive a F-150 4x4
11-17-2008 Picked up my beautiful Orphan. A white/black passion that I call Annie.
12-01-2008 Had Annies windows tinted by Roberts Window Tinting
12-06-2008 Annie and 3 other smarts were in the Shelbyville Christmas parade. We all had a blast.
05-19-2009 Installed Chrome Grill Surround on Annie
05-20-2009 Attended smart event in INDY and drove Annie around the INDY track .... 121 smarts there... awsome time
07-25-2009 Participated in a cruse-in in downtown Shelbyville. All muscle cars or very old cars except for my smart. I parked by a beautiful yellow 1970's mustang. Looked new. The other side of me was a truck older than me. More pics and comments on my little smart than those 2 cars or the 3 vettes facing me from the other side of the street.. Now have 5900 miles.. NO PROBLEMS
11-17 2009 I've now owned ANNIE for 1 year. Today I took her to the smart dealer and had the 10,000 mile service. She actually has 7500 miles but I just figured she needed a birthday gift from me
I've had NO issures in my year of driving her. I've loved every mile.
I bought my smart on Nov 17 2008. On May 15th 2009 I replaced the black grill surround with a new chrome one. The black on is as close to perfect as any grill that was on a car for 7 months. My car has NEVER sit outside at night. ALWAYS Garaged. You can see the black surround in the pics above. If anyone wants a black grill surround, I'll sell it for 1/2 of whatever the dealer will plus the exact postage. If you live near Shelbyville KY you are welcome to pick it up and not have any postage. Let me know... I'm not on here much.. send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org THANK YOU
hi Kevin.. CONGRATS on getting putt putt... I hope you love your little putt putt as much as I love my Annie. I now have 7200 care free miles on her and have loved every minute of it. The more you drive your little putt putt the better you will like it. The transmission seemed akward at 1st but now I love it. I use my paddle shifters most of the time and as the engine loosens up the rpm's climb much faster and it sounds much better as it gets more miles. i've yet to have a problem with anything. take care... enjoy putt putt and keep me up to date... :-)
I do wish you well and hope you can make but if anyone understands, I do. We'll definitely be doing it again next year, though we can only hope Gary Schembri can come back next year. Smartimes Magazine is covering the event and Gary is giving a little speech at our dinner. Maybe you can help with putting it together to get more from your area to join us.
Annie's new jewel looks great.
Are you coming to the Out-smart-ing the Dragon event?
I joined the Ky smart car club so I can see if I can coordinate a few trips to Louisville to see my cousin and rake in a smart event. Also, our club is going to be making the Santa hats this year.
Hope all is well.
HELLO FRIENDS.. It's been months since I've been here. Before I got my smart car I was here nightly for almost a year. Just to update everyone, my smart now has 5600 miles, is perfect in everyway, and a pleasure to drive. Getting 40+ mpg in Shelbyville. Only long road trip was INDY smart car meet a couple of months ago. Got 42+ on that trip, but at that time was only getting 37 in town. I hope to buy a cabrio next year (2010)
