"Picked up mine Sept 17, 2008. One year later 8/18/09 and 3k miles over warrantee, I had to pay for a new clutch. I've had all the software updates to fix the R problem which none of them have fixed. I'm at 83K miles now. I love my car and…"

"FWIW, car companies (even Mercedes) don't automatically recall every defect or problem; M-B issued several software updates to address certain shifting issues and it's possible one of those may correct the problem with your car.  Only…"

"Had the Smart cabriolet for 2 years. No problem whatsoever except that I had to substitute two bulbs of the, br.eak lights, which I did myself. I still do 35/45 and at over $4 / gallon I feel pretty good."

What is the age of your car??? Any problems??

Posted on June 14, 2011 at 2:54pm 12 Comments

Hi everyone!!

 

It's been quite a while since I have been on this site.  I just past my 2 year mark in April with owning my little car.  I must say, I am still as happy as ever with it.  I am curious tho, how many of you out there have had your little car for at least 2 years, and are YOU still as happy today as you were when you got yours?  Have you had any problems? If so, what are they?  Please let me know. I get a little concerned with the age of my car and how many…

Tax deduction???

Posted on February 8, 2010 at 5:36pm 6 Comments

Since it is tax time, and I bought my Smart in 2009, I was wondering if anyone knows of a tax deduction they have received since purchasing their Smart. I remember something early in 2009 about the government giving a tax rebate/deduction (of some sort) to vehicles that are good on gas consumption. Well, my little Smart has been averaging approximately 59-61 mpg. Yes, you read that right. I am not talking about the cash for clunker program that has since been gone for a long time. If anyone has… Continue

Tax deduction for Smart plus gas mileage??

Posted on July 31, 2009 at 12:30pm 7 Comments

Does anyone know if the purchase of a Smart is considered one of the type of vehicles for the Federal Government Car Allowance Rebate System or the Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEU), which EPA considers a "Smartway Vehicle"? I was wondering if, because it gets such good gas mileage, it would fall under the category for a tax deduction. I know a lot of people who own their Smarts are getting a wide variety of differences on their mileage, but I personally have been ranging between 48 - 51 mpg.… Continue

What's your mpg??

Posted on June 3, 2009 at 7:14pm 16 Comments

I was just wondering what everyone is getting on their miles per gallon. I have been averaging 45. I travel quite a lot on the freeway and am very impressed with how much I am getting. I just love my little car!!

Problems with security system and dome light

Posted on June 1, 2009 at 5:51pm 3 Comments

I was wondering if any of you have had any problems with the security system in their smart? Today I locked my smart and when I came out to unlock it, my key fob would not unlock. It acts like the battery is dead in the key fob and I had to manually unlock the door (and of course the alarm system goes off!) and I had to actually start the smart to get the alarm to go off. I do not know how to stop the alarm system. I also noticed there is no way to lock the door without the alarm system. The… Continue
