"Hi, Wayne. If you're experiencing shifting issues with your smart, you may need the update. Please visit your local smart center and they can run a check on your car."

"Michele, I bought my Smart Passion in August 2012. It is a 2009 and only had 9200 miles on it. How do I know if I have the update you are talking about and are there any more updates I need?  "

"I have almost 9,000 miles on mine with no cracks yet. Smart should pay for it if it is happening to all the cars, same with the tires."

My favorite things about smart
Little car and very cute. I am getting the Blue with silver.
About Me
I love the little cars. I have a 2000 Toyota Celica (Blue) right now. It gets good gas mileage. I thought I had a small car until I saw a smart car in Germany 4 years ago. I haven't had anything go wrong with it, but it totally sucks in the snow. I just can't wait to get my smart. I am going to get the passion, it is blue with silver. My DDE date is now, after changing every couple weeks, Aug.12th 2008 - Nov.10th 2008.

Just got my car serviced. Was there for 1 1/2 hours, not too bad. Also got the 2.0 update which is a free battery and they update the computer software. It comes with a free battery, and the car shifts so much nicer, that took an extra hour. I only have 6,000 miles but my year was up about a week ago.

Smar Car Accident on 4-24-09

Posted on May 14, 2009 at 3:37pm 2 Comments

Went by the car place today to see my smart, and it is fixed. The lady tole me 3 days ago that it would be at least 3 more weeks or longer before I get my car back, and I should have it Monday or Tuesday depending on when the appraiser comes out to look at it. They shipped the parts Fed Ex which was a lot faster. I can't wait to drive it home and drive it around again.

I got into an accident today with my Smart Car!

Posted on April 24, 2009 at 6:00pm 5 Comments

I was leaving work today and this lady decided to take a left hand turn and cross traffic to go into my work, right in front of me and I hit her. I was doing about 15mph. I am not hurt and I have to say the Smart did very good in this accident. I feel so safe in that car. I am so mad, I am going to be probably a month without my Smart Car. This wasn't my fault because she cut me off taking a left hand turn but I still have to wait for the insurance company to still decide. I can't wait to get… Continue

Gas tank now not a problem.

Posted on September 4, 2008 at 11:16am 1 Comment

My second bar on my gas guage just went out. Thank god there isn't a problem there anymore. My dad said if it never moved then I would have to go back to the dealership for them to take out the gas tank and fix whatever the problem is. Who knows how long it would be there for. Thankyou everyone for your comments, it made me feel a lot better about this.

Gas tank, hopefully not a problem.

I have driven my smart about 159 miles so far. Only one of the gas tank lights has come off my car when there is 8 there letting you know when you come to empty and you need to fill up. Has this happened to anyone else? How many miles is everyone getting from one fill up?

Hi Michele!

My name is natty and I see you're from MA (one of the states I've been dying to go to) :)

anyways, I've been trying to find more participants from the New England area 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. 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!

btw...I love your photos!

Hi Michele

I hope you can finally join us! It would be great to meet you!

We are all getting ready for the Saturday, April 18th Smart Celebration in Lynnfield. The event will be from 11am to 4pm. Every Smart car gets a free car wash! Great food, raffles, awards for "favorite Smart" and "greatest distance traveled". Have your name put on your car. The names can be either "SMART" font or "Script", and colors can be silver or black. Simply let me know what you want on your car and I will put the order in. This is "FREE" and provided by Sign Art. The names will be 3/4" and put on the driver's upper door just below the window, send info for passenger's door also if you want. Lets make this a great Celebration with all of our Smart friends. The weather will be sunny and 63 so make sure you come by. Bring a friend, anyone interested in Smarts, take a test drive. No matter where you purchased your Smart, you are always welcome at All Mass Smart Car Events. We have to pass on great thanks to Herb Chambers, Mark Hoch, Gil Otero, Grace Cosco and the entire Smart Lynnfield team for their support. A lot of you folks ask about the Mercedes Badge on my car, I will have a cost for you next week and its a 10 min install. Check out my Page and Pics to see the Mercedes Badge located under the license plate. Please RSVP even if you can't make it, we would like to keep everyone in the Smart site loop.

I'm not going to take my smart out in the snow. I didn't figure it could do very well because it is too light. Not enough weight to keep the wheels from spinning. Sorry to hear your mom got laid off.
At 3:40pm on January 27, 2009, I'm Bill.. my smart is Annie said…
Annie is doing awsome. I'm just a mile or 2 from 1700 miles. No problems. It just gets better by the mile. I think the heated seats are the best option out there.. lol We got 1 3/4 " of snow last night. Now 1/4" of ice on top and its still falling. Thats the only measurable snow this season. I wish I lived somewhere that gets loads of snow. I love it. I didn't drive Annie in it today. Just washed, waxed, and vacuumed her out 2 days ago. It was 59 degrees.. now 28degrees. Shes in the garage and I got a nice smart cover for Christmas for her. I have a 2003 F-150 4x4 for the nasty weather. Have you had your smart in the snow? Its nice hearing from you. Take care and have a wonderful day. :-)
