"Did your dealer give you a loaner at least. I've had some small issues (pressure valve in fuel line?????). Plaze STLouis have been terrific. Maria"

"Which dealer. I see you live in Hartford and I was considering driving up from Norwalk as Hartford is about $100 cheaper for the 20k service"

Smart in dealer shop for 8 weeks and counting ...

We had a warning light on the dash back in February, took the car in to the dealer, took them a week to try to figure out the problem, which they did not (we have 23,000 comuter miles on the car). They had a code for a bad fuel injector on #2 cylinder, so they switched the #2 injector with the #1 injector, light went out, we picked up the car. Several weeks later the light was on again (March 12). After 3 weeks of " we don't know what is wrong", Smart USA told them to remove the head. A week…See More

Smart in dealer shop for 8 weeks and counting

We had a warning light on the dash back in February, took the car in to the dealer, took them a week to try to figure out the problem, which they did not (we have 23,000 comuter miles on the car). They had a code for a bad fuel injector on #2 cylinder, so they switched the #2 injector with the #1 injector, light went out, we picked up the car. Several weeks later the light was on again (March 12). After 3 weeks of " we don't know what is wrong", Smart USA told them to remove the head. A week later thay had the head off, burnt valve and valve seat on #2 cylinder and the same starting on #1 cylinder. Took a week to get the head from Smart USA and another two weeks to put the car back together (engine was taken out of the car). I was told a week ago on Friday the car was ready, just needed oil added to the engine, can pick up the car on Monday. No call from dealer on Monday, find out on Wednesday the car was taken for a test drive and it was leaking oil, they had to remove the motor again, fix the leak and put it back together, I can pick up the car on Thursday. No call from dealer until Friday afternoon, your car is ready, you can pick it up on Saturday. I get another call 10 minutes later, 'uh, we were going to wash your car for you and when we started it up, a warning light came on, the Smart techician is off today, so we cannot look into the problem until Monday".

Transmission Replaced

Posted on November 22, 2009 at 10:41am 4 Comments

If you recall, we had shifting issues right after the clutch was replaced back in October, well, now the transmission was replaced. The good news is Smart paid for it even with our car having over 23,000 miles on the odometer. Still love the car, still having fun, enjoy the 40 plus miles to the gallon; even when i drive 80 MPH on my daily 140 mile round trip comute!

Clutch Replaced at 22,000 Miles

Posted on October 28, 2009 at 10:36am 5 Comments

We purchased our Fortwo April 2008. My wife commutes from Hartford to NYC twice a week and loves the car. The majority of the 22k miles is freeway driving. She experienced a "no shift" situation, shifter moves in all directions, no gears (not to be confused with the under lubricated shifter switch, we already fixed that ourselves months ago after being stranded in a dark parking lot for an hour). Dealer stated there is a service bulletin on this clutch problem, replaced the clutch, no charge.… Continue
