Went from Hudson to Rochester last week. 25,500 miles since purchased in the…"
"Thanks, Kamaal and jwright for providing responses somewhat in the interests of MB, but the original input from MB that we were given regarding this forum said, "We can’t promise you that everything will be answered all the time but what…"
"What is so confusing and exasperating is that local dealers are claiming to service smarts, Rochester is dangled as a possibility or a new dealership, and Eric remains mum about his "service point" promise of ages ago. The miscommunication…"
You said you would notify us here first regarding Minnesota service point and we've heard at the midwest rally and now the Madison dealer that a service point is to be in Minnesota. Any word from you?
Yeah, the Mn "overheat" indication has been on red for some time, but, as we recall, you indicated that you would let this forum be the first to know if any Mn. service point is available. We've been hearing rumblings…"
"I received the following e-mail today. Yesterday I personally went to MB of Maplewood in Twin Cities and talked to the Sales Manager who said there was nothing stirring about a "service point" for smart in the Twin Cities.

"What bothers me most about being a Miinesota orphan is that I bought this car new last March in the Twin Cities, was told by the dealer that MB would be servicing my vehicle, and yet smart corporate or MB has made absolutely no attempt to contact…"
Spent most of my adult life in prisons, in Washington, Oregon, Pennsylvania and just got out after over 20 years in Minnesota. Nancy and I love RVing, Zuma riding, and this month Nancy will skydive to celebrate her 70th B-day. I work 1/2 time a pseudo-prison called a Nursing Home as a chaplain.
