"I have had my smart since April 2008, it has been on many road trips and does great. So far I have had to replace both tail light bulbs and both headlight bulbs and had a nail removed from a tire. I totally love this car and will…"
oops-sorry I took so long to respond-on 9/11 I apparently had a little MI--good that I was at work and my co-workers got me help quickly so I have a little stent, now and a hand-full of pills and a new doctor, but was out of the hospital on the 14th and back at work on the 15th. So you can tell that I am "a woman of a more interesting age". As to my Sullivan roots; grandparents on both sides were from Terre Haute--Drennans and Gaar/Garrs. Mom and sibs all grew up and went to school in the Sullivan area. I was born there but we moved to Chicago when I was 5 months old and I've only visited a few time since then. My grandparents are buried there. I live in Alabama now. Hope to visit again in the next year or so, so if you see a yellow/silver smart with Alabama plates (and Green Bay Packers stickers) it'll probaby be me!
That really helps! They obviously can't go by weight (damaging the roads) and cost (not high enough) so they had to come up with SOMETHING. $200 and change for the first year is decent. And it will only go down. I also understand insurance is not bad. Which is also a surprise, because I figured it would be awful. Which insurance co in Indiana did you go with? I use Geico now and have no problems, and I heard Geico was a really good deal. My date is still the same, but I just drove by the dealership on the N side of Indy and they had probably 10-15 cars there. I am on the orphan list, but I won't take just ANY orphan. I am waiting for a cabrio and well I want the decked out car. I want the heated seats for my bad bad arthritic back. While I zip zip around. Do you love zip zipping around? Do Tell!!!!
I received my bees today and put one on the antenna and hung the other from the mirror. Love it. Then I had 2 people stop me while at Krogers and had to see the car, one is a PT cruiser and plans on possibly ordering a smart for next year.
Have a great day!
Bee talking again
I also have a bumble bee. I live around Dayton Ohio. I am loving my car. I work for Speedway and just love to show it off at work. I am going to my first smart meet next weekend and i can not wait to see all the others.
