20,000 miles; turning front tires around

Posted on July 25, 2009 at 7:30am 11 Comments

At the 20,000 check-up at my dealership (Bloomfield Hills, MI) I was told to go to a tire place and have them turn my 2 front tires around and have them balanced due to normal inside wear of the tires. First tire place blew me off and said that was not the correct procedure and they were actually rude to me. I suggested that they call the dealership which they would not do so I smartly took my business elsewhere. Second tire place did not have the equipment to work on my car, but the guy was… Continue

My MSU senior Spartan son needed to trade cars so he could get his Grand Prix brakes repaired locally at a much reduced price. It was fixed within 48 hours but he doesn't want to trade me back! Help!

Suzie read what I wrote at your blog about tire rotation. It sounds like it was done correctly. We have had Maxwell since 3/2008 also and just turned 21,500 miles.

Hi Suzie,

Could you please tell me where you got the "actual size" decal on the back window of your smartcar. We are still waiting for our silver/black passion coupe and my wife says she has to have one of those decals.
Thanks for your help......

Hi Suzie, what great mileage! We don't have to do a lot of highway driving so probably won't be able to come close to those 40ish miles. We're out in the country near Elgin, Il. We have to go at least 10 miles to get to anything but that's nothing considering the 80 mile round trip comute I used to do daily when working. I am just so happy to have the Smarty and not have to use my husbands big duely truck or my Trailblazer every time we go out. Big $'s saved there.

The letters are vinyl. I went to a sign shop and had them made. $30.00 for the letters and $20 to install, Its a DIY after you've seen it once. You can choose font and color. If you go for it, send me a pic.

Hi Suzie,
I have a Black Cabriolet. Drive w top down most of the time. I work in the AT&T building on Big Beaver so I am in Troy a lot. I get so many people asking about the car. People talk to me at stop lights all the time. My 18 year old daughter takes it out every might. My plate reads SMART 1. Can't make it to the swim meet. Out of town. Hope to see you on the road. DM
