Walt Marini commented on I'm Bill.. my smart is Annie's group 2009 BRABUS
"I have been disappointed with the gas mileage on my Brabus.  I am getting around 34 mpg around town and close to 40 on the highway. I thought the dealer in St. Charles was much better than Loeber Motors."

"Not too many of us out there.  I recently had my 2009 Brabus serviced in St. Charles and had a pleasant experience other than the $400 it cost me for the 24,000 mile checkup.  "

"jwight is correct. IT's instant fuel economy in the top left of the instrument cluster and is part of the different instrument cluster that accompanies the cruise package."

"Do you have the cruise control package with the trip computer?  Even though that message doesn't appear on the various screen options (page 95) it sounds like an instant fuel consumption notice.  If you don't have cruise control…"

"Per the owners manual, you're on  your last gallon of gas.  The little gas pump symbol should be flashing and the mileage readout should be showing a countdown by tenths of a gallon to zero.  Time to fill up!"

My wife hit a small dead animal on the road last week. It ripped the low front fender and I am now waiting for the body and fender service to get the part and fix it. I think this will be an ongoing problem as well as slush and snow in the winter. Anyone else have this experience?

Beeping Alarm

Posted on August 16, 2009 at 5:59am 11 Comments

Has anyone had a problem with their alarm going off for no apparent reason. Intermittently, I get the alarm when I remove the key from the ignition for no apparent reason. All I have to do is to turn the key to the "on" position and off again to make it stop. Does anyone know why?

Walt,
I don't think the actual date has been set as yet, but "Clicker," will post it in the Chicagoland group section. I think it will be held at the California Pizza Kitchen in Skokie again.
