"The electric dive is an excellent choice for those that can live with its range limitations.  A lot of us can't so it is not an alternative, but it's still a smart and that's a good thing."

Roof Problem

Posted on March 21, 2010 at 10:49am 0 Comments

My Smart Cabrio is having roof problems. It looks like 2 pins came out of the drivers side of the fabric roof system. I have the extended warrant and we have an appointment tomorrow in Jax, Fl. I hope they can fix it fast- It's been raining here and I am tired of driving other peoples cars while My Smart is safe in the garage.

LOST Smart Key!!!!

Posted on February 23, 2010 at 3:49pm 6 Comments

I know this has NEVER happened to anybody before now..... but I lost my Smart Key!!! I searched everywhere !!!! You would not believe what I when through looking for the KEY! Finally I gave up and got the spare KEY to use.

I called my Smart Car Dealer in JAX to order another KEY. Guess what!!!! A replacement KEY is almost $500.00. JUST for a KEY with a computer chip. If it's got a computer chip why can't they locate my original…


The 'Brumos Museum'

Dear Speedy-

I want to say a special Thank you to Mr. Davis for allowing the "JaxSmarts" to visit the museum. I understand there was concern for having such a group exploring the collectables. Please assure Mr. Davis that each and everyone that attended has a true appreciation for what he has accomplished with the museum. I see why you enjoy working with Mr. Davis, he has a true appreciation for the history of the cars and believes in being the caretaker of those treasures. He has… Continue

Trun lights in the doors are Popping off

Posted on June 15, 2009 at 12:29pm 0 Comments

Is anybody else having this problem??? The driver side turn light popped out, the little plastic latches are broken off. Wouldn't you know, the passenager side light has popped out and the plastic latches are broken off on that one too. I don't know what is breaking the plastic clips. Those lights do not look good flopping on the doors. Well a Smart person does not drive around with the lights beating on the doors; So 2 sided tape is used until new lights can be ordered.

Thank you Mary Ann. Can smart owners have the oil changed elsewhere? Or will that void the warranty? YIKES!

Hi Mary Ann, my wait on my original reservation was 9 months (March 08-Dec 08). Because I sold my orphan to a colleage and friend at work, I was not seeking "top dollar." I just wanted a fair price. I marked it down a little due to the 7k miles it already had on it.

Hi Mary Ann, I am told I have the first metalic/grey silver in the Boston area. She is actually my 2nd smart. I got an orphan in August (Black/Silver) and sold that one a week ago. On Tuesday (12/16) TCUP42 (#2) arrived - exactly to my specification! And she's a 2009 too!

Yours is pretty cute - love the red interior with the silver.

How'd the oil change go? Is your dealer here in Jacksonville or in Atlanta? What other things did they recommend or did you have to pay for?

We missed you two today at Jekyll. I hope you had other Labor Day things happening and it wasn't that you got to Jekyll and couldn't find us. Hope to see you next month.
