"I'm heading up to Cabela's on the 18th from San Antonio. Is this open to anyone with a Smart or is this an exclusive club function. Would love to meet other Smart Car owners from the area."

"Yes, I have it but really don't need it as I have a cabrio with the navigation system by Pioneer in my 2008. But for those who do not, it is great. "

"Steve Campbell is correct. Need more identification with MB. The attitude toward the car changes completely when people are told that it is a Diamler product. Whether valid or not, the name Mercedes Benz, is a selling point. "

"I totally agree, need to see more positive comments. I bought mine used from a guy who had three. One for him, his wife, and their daughter. His was more of a hobby, hence all of the mods have already been done. His wife's has 48k, the daughter…"

"Yes, you are correct that not everybody is a member of Facebook, or go to the Smart website; however, I have told many about Smart Insider, and ScoA who are also totally ignorant about their existence. Whether we like it or not, it seems that…"

"All the complaints about the Facebook announcement of the new website (which is very nice) is a bit much. Just go and enjoy the new website, and I think the UN.... idea is at least unique. Nice to see MB starting to advertise. Hope to see TV ads…"

"Agreed.  Here in San Antonio, Texas I have 4 in my neighborhood.  Quite a few in Austin.  But Fiat has a bad track record in the past.  A lot of us older guys remember the problems that Fiat had.  That said, MB needs to…"

"My apologies to Corky, I did not realize that it was new.  However, I did state that MB needs to step up to the plate, and authorize SOMEONE in the area to do warranty repairs, or pay for shipment of the Smart to a repair facility, and back.…"

"I thought this was supposed to be suggestions to MB on what they could to improve their marketing, service, etc. But instead it has become typical gripe and grumble session. Yes, ALL German cars are expensive to operate and repair. At least most of…"

"Well, I can understand some of Kenny's concerns. He sees the 451 not as an improvement on the design but as a step backward. I have heard some people complain about the 450 vs. the 451, the same way I complained about my 2003 Honda Hybrid vs.…"
