Jim Yedor commented on Ramon Reyes's blog post Electric power stirring
"My experience driving my Passion without P/S and driving several smarts with it is that it is completely unnecessary. I also found it to be too easy on the freeway. The smart is small and light and rear engine. I'm sure that those who have…"

Jim Yedor commented on Chuck Comer's blog post Smart Transmission
"Chuck- What year smart? '08, '09, '10? Start there. Also, why not leave the battery connected, drive the car, then take it to the dealer?"

"OK Sato- I'll bite. I take it you do have the power steering option. Try turning the engine off while driving and tell me what happens. Real world. If I'm wrong I'm wrong."

"I don't have power steering in my Cabrio and a smart doesn't need it. As to power brakes, also not needed to stop the car. We are talking adults here, right?"

Hi Jim,

My name is David and I am a student from NYU and I am working on a project for Smart Car. I was wondering if you could help me out by answering a few questions about why you bought the car? Let me know.

I'm retired. I was with United Air Lines in customer service in the Air Freight Department for 38 years. I was told I could retire or just leave because my job would be contracted out. It was a no brainer. I was going to retire in 7 months anyway. So the wife and I do planing and we travel a few times a year. But that with your son, that sounds like fun. You get a chance, look up The Algonquin Hill Climb. From the early 1900's. I lived in Algonquin for 33 years.

Jim I wasn't sure my message went through to you and I was about to report them myself. I agree with you 100%, the blog is for smart. And by the way, I have read some that have problems that I can't answer and I have told others to contact you. I feel that if you don't have an answer, back to the drawing board. Are you retired ???

Jim, Wally Gullang in Huntley. The idiot with the camera seems to be getting to you. Keep cool. Go to the top of the page, click on (main) and go all the way to the bottom. Click on "To report an issue" and go at it. How ever CRUD is, file the report and let them get rid of the jerk.

Thanks Jim about the same time I posted to you I found your link in nuts and Bolts. I also found another site for Panel replacement that was also informative. Thanks for getting back to me I appreciate it.

Jim, thanks for your comment to the wacko trying to sell med's on the blog. I too was going to reply to the jerk but thought you did an excellent job so I backed off. Didn't want the poor guy feeling too bad. But I see he pulled his so called advertisement

Hi Jim!

My name is natty and I see you're from So. Cal too (I'm originally from O.C). :)

anyways, I've been trying to find more participants from my home state 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 in NY. 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!
