My favorite things about smart
safety. price, mileage. And now that I've been driving it - the way it handles, the features, the room for my dog, how it feels, the transmission, styling, and how much people love it.
About Me
I am a writer, teacher, and holistic health practitioner. I still would rather walk or bike than drive, but driving sure is more fun these days. I'm committed to doing my part to reverse the climate crisis.
My smart's name


The DDE has been moving almost every day this week, one day further away. No news from the dealer.

DDE changed to starting 10/23/08, then 10/27/08

Dealer confirmed November arrival.

I found out on my own about the transport from Germany 10/28/08

The car is in Baltimore as of Nov. 13, 2008. No word from the dealer this month. The DDE is set on 10/27 as the early part of the 3 month window.

The dealer estimate of Nov 26 for delivery isn't going to happen. The original window of 40-70 days expires Dec. 7. So I am hoping for next week!

On Nov. 24 the dealer had no idea where the car was or when it might be in. I called. No dealer initiated e-mails or contact since Oct. 1. But pretty quick responses to my e-mails, except for the last one, still waiting to hear about the EPA sticker issue.

Friday Nov. 28 and the car is here and I am picking it up this afternoon.

Hmmm....Maybe once. My office is near Briarwood and I live to the north, passing through town each day. My plate is IAMSMRT. I am a blue/silver cabrio with tan interior. I have seen 3 other Smarts near my home. It is always exciting to come across another one.

Good to see another smart owner in the "neighborhood". I work in AA. Maybe we will cross paths one day. Enjoy.

Thanks Linda, I typed in the VIN # on the Cargo ID line and it didn't respond. I'll keep trying. Appreciate the help!

Congrats on getting your car. I hope that you have as much fun with it as I have with mine.

Congrats on the car...and smart color choice too . Welcome to the club!

Like Jeff says, drop a line if you're in K-zoo.

my smart was loaded onto a boat on 9/29, arrived in Baltimore on 10/12, and ready to go at the dealership in Denver on 10/24. There were a couple of other European stops before it crossed the atlantic, and then the first stop was Baltimore. You are about a month behind me. I love my Frostini

my smart is on the boat from Germany, left 10/28/08 and will arrive in NY Nov 10, or maybe Maryland Nov 12?

I reserved on November 16, 2007 and still no configuration email. Had a DDE of May 09 - July 09 for a week or so and now no date. Have had no date for several days. Hope I get email soon.

The blue and black is also a nice color choice. My dog must look big in the pictures cause he is only 20 lbs, a long haired daschund. I think the car will be too big for your rhodesian ridgeback. I work at Petsmart in the grooming salon and every rhodesian that comes in is so sweet. they are such good dogs, and so cute.

Hope you consider coming out to Grand Rapids in the next day or two to meet fellow smarties during our 28th Street Metro Cruise (see event section).
