"Every smart I've ever driven and ridden in (2 cabrios, 4 coupes) didn't have any of what you're describing.
Did you buy it used? Maybe the previous owner had left the top open over a wet weekend or something.
Otherwise I'd like…"
"My top will not stay up anymore. The clips are rusted. The metal parts on the seatbelts are all rusting and barely hold in the belts. The cigarette lighter no longer works because it is all rusted, and now the rear window defroster has quit because…"
Sorry to hear your sick.I usually get bronchitis every winter but was lucky this year.There's no rush,if we can't do May and June(Dells meet) then we'll hold off till July.I will be setting that up hopefully at IKEA.Maybe people can do smaller local meets instead of a big one then when we all get together we can show off the pictures.
Robert,there seems to be interest in Bolingbrook for a meet in May.How about setting something up for a "coffee" meet.I set up the last meet back in Febuary and we had 17 cars show up so there will have to be lots of parking.I am not familiar with that area so have at it!
Hi Robert. I'm not having tire light issues but had to remind myself to hit the reset button after adjusting the pressure. My transmission shifts much smoother than the model that I test drove but it sometimes does something that I call "freewheeling" where it doesn't seem engaged - this is what it would feel like with a regular manual transmission with the clutch pushed in, disengaged, so it doesn't seem abnormal to me at all. The transmission exhibits sensations like an manual and not an automatic so if you are not used to a manual it might feel a bit odd to you. David
