went to the dealer today

Posted on November 3, 2008 at 8:37pm 2 Comments

Went to the dealer to get a part for one of my cars and I had to take a smart out for a test drive. I talked to the salesman and he checked on my car. He told me it will be in Dec. 5 2008. I can't wait it is almost here. I am doing a happy dance.

call from the dealer

Posted on October 17, 2008 at 9:34pm 2 Comments

The dealer called and said my car was being built on 11-27-2008. Then told me I will get it in December. I still look at the dde 4 times a day. For the people who got their car, now what do you look forward to? I need help with names for him when he comes in. Thanks, he is a white and black hard top with leather seats.

sales are slowing down?

I stopped by the smart dealer today and talked to the salesman. He was telling me that sales have slowed down a lot. He has orphans on the lot that are not selling with the $2500. add-ons . What do you guys think maybe its just the north east? On the other hand I was looking at an 09 benz and he was not moving at all on the list price. Two years ago I ordered one from the same dealer and paid under list. I don't get it.

can't wait

My DDE is 10-22-08 to 1-20-09 and now that it is getting close I can't wait. When it was a year away I was fine but now I'm obsessed. I check the DDE 6 times a day. When did you guys get your cars in your 3 month window. Does the 3 month window go down to a 1 month window or 1 week or what. Help, thanks for letting me vent.

Hi Trip!

My name is natty and I see you're from the Tri-state area like me (I live in NY.) :)

anyways, I've been trying to find more participants from New Jersey to take my Smart Car owner survey. This is for a marketing strategy plan that I have to do for one of my classes at Fordham University. It'll only take a few minutes and my group and I would really love to hear from you. :)

Just copy and paste this link onto your browser.

Thanks so much!

I did the install myself. It wasn't to bad you just have to modify some tools to make it work. There is a video on showing you how to do it. The car takes corners like it's glued to the road now. The spring also got rid of the rocking when the car shifts gears as well. The only complaint I have is it rides rough on brick streets now and pot holes are a nightmare. But being able to do 60 going onto the highway makes it all worth it.

I didn't find it, that is what the dealer was asking for the one on the house orphan. They also wanted $900.00 for the under dash sub!?! I priced it out and I can replacate their whole "up-graded" stereo for less then they wanted for the sub alone.

Hey Trip,
You are really going to be doing the happy dance in just a few weeks. This car really is a trip. I love my little purple smart. I ordered a Rally Red pasion due Feb. 09. I like this one better. Having fun in Vegas, Nancy & Gary

Hey trip, No it is the 2008 metallic red. It just looks real red from the way the digital picture was taken. I do not know what the Rallye Red will look like yet.
