A really horribly funny story

Posted on June 16, 2009 at 7:10pm 1 Comment

Hey everybody. Here is a funny and true story that you all need to hear because this might happen to you. I was driving my car to my friends one day and the ABS light went on. For all of you that do not know what that is, it is the airbag light aka guy in the seat with airbag in his face light. Anyhow, I thought that it was related to my accident, but I was wrong. About a week before I brought my car back to the shop, they had to replace the passenger seatbelt mechanism because it was not fully… Continue

Hey everybody. I just watched and read all about the newest iihs crash against bigger vehicles. The iihs is saying along wit fox news and many other stations that the small cars are unsafe against larger vehicles and you should all go out and buy a bigger car. From my personal experience when I crashed my Smart against a ford focus, I was find and the other guy was injured. From being a big hit on the news to being an avoidance, I think that these results put a big dent in the minds of many… Continue

Smart Car St. Patricks Day Parade

Hey Everybody. I just got back from the St. Patrick day parade. Eileen set up Smart cars to be in the parade. I want to thank Eileen for her incredible services she has done to make arrangements at the bar afterward and to set us up to be in the parade. To view the pictures, look on my page because it was having a hard time uploading to the blog for some reason. Everybody that came along traveled long and far to be in the parade and I am happy I met everybody. They are all like my family and… Continue

Hey everybody. I just got back from a Smart car rally. The rally consisted of Smart technicians and after reading a blog post about the transmission chip, I had to ask it to clear the air. Emily at the center told me all you have to do is contact the service center and leave your car there for about an hour and they will flash your 2008 transmission chip to the 2009 transmission chip COMPLIMENTARY! I suggest everybody to do this for the ability to shift while in automatic and to apparently have… Continue

Hi Brett
Thanks for the invite. I am still learning the road, so I won't promise that I will come until I know my way around. I am hoping to take long drives this summer and enjoy exploring places. Oh by the way I did get my first oil change this past saturday. I kind of got lost getting there, but know that I know where the place is I will be able to get there no problem next time. By the way how old are you. I am 32. It hard to tell from your photo of you with your car. Have you given your car a name. I have not, but I think I will go with the name Cherokee.

Hi Brett
have you seen any other smart car drivers. I know I have seen at least 2 others and would like them to join up in the group. maybe we can find a place to all get together. I am from Bridgeport, but I could probably meet somewhere in surrounding Shelton, Stratford or fairfiled. I may not know those areas too well yet, but I have a gps so I will eventually figure it out. I am actually going to get my first oil change this saturday. That will be the highlight of my day!!

Hey Brett,
Have you ever had any issues with a flapping noise coming from your convertible top when it is closed at highway speeds?

Okay, Brett! You have missed an incredible photo Op. I would be willing to bet the the pictures we want to see exist! That is an outstanding example of a car that crashed into a smart on your blog. Now, where are the pics of the minor damage to your car? And DETAILS!!!!!! Or maybe it is on the safe and smart Web site. I haven't gone there to look for you. Nothing much on the crashed smarts but a comment or two. Enquiring Minds Want To Know!!!!!
I really do want to see pictures and hear your story!

Hi Brett,
Thanks for the info. It has only done it that one time. So I think it was what you said.

Hi Brett,
Yes it is the same sound as the lights left on sound but I do not have the alarm package. It only did it once and after reentry it is alright?

Do you know why my Smart ,Pure, would be sounding a beeping sound after you exit the car. I checked lights and stuff but nothing on?
It only has 500 miles on it its a 2009?

Hi Brett!

My name is natty and I see you're from the Tri-State area too (I'm from NY)

anyways... I've been trying to find more participants from the New England area to take my Smart Car owner survey. This is for a marketing strategy plan that I have to do for one of my classes at Fordham University. It'll only take a few minutes and my group and I would really love to hear from you. :)

Just copy and paste this link onto your browser.

Thanks so much!

btw...I love your photo

wow that is fun to be able to tell that story! Thanks for getting back to me. My car was one day old, parked across the street from my diner to be able to have my customers finally see it, and for me to enjoy looking at it...when a car came flying down main street, to park in front of me. I was watching thinking he is going so fast he is going to side swipe my car, no he parked fine in front of it then backed up so fast and smashed the front of my car pushing it back some! I was running across the street yelling you just hit my new car over and over again...he got out and said " I am so sorry I have the back up screen and never watch it or listen to the beeping to tell me I am near something" well to make a long story short he is telling me he will pay for any damages...we both then turn to look at the front of the car......................NOTHING....yes nothing...I then called my dealer in Boston and they said it has a 5 mile an hour crash box in the front and guess that means it works!!! LOLOLOL I am still telling that story...I am proud to have my smart car and love it more then any other car I have had! So happy it was safe for you...
