I asked redoregon for permission to repost his 'review' of MB of San Antonio here and so here it is for you to enjoy.
"Just got back from my 20,000 mile maintenance.
Called at about 9 this morning, got an 11:30 appointment. Arrived at 11:15; guy outside was at the door before I got it open, then ran inside to get my paperwork when I told him I had an appointment. Got the rest of my info (address, etc), then brought me into the service…
I want to thank Forest for the inspiration for this Blog post.
Thanks, Forest! Sincerely, Michael.
The following is a response I made to a post by Forest at SCoA.

an artist friend of mine has come up with some new smart car shirts. I got 2 of them already, one for me and one for the wife.
I like the balloon one better, but the canoe one is cool too.
If you buy one, tell 'em "Shaun sent me"
Thought I'd post this. The screen capture shows my car as a 'Mercedes Benz' smart fortwo.
Here's where to check your 'Drive or Fly'
Use year as 2010, Make as Mercedes Benz, model fortwo will be at…Continue
Having to drive 4+ hours to Madison WI to have a car serviced is absurd. Why not give Feldmann Imports, the former owners of the Minnesota franchise, the diagnostic software to service our cars? There are many more people and probably more SMART cars in the Minneapolis - St. Paul area then in Madison WI. If you want to continue to sell your cars in the US this is not the why to do it.
In March 07, I brought my Smart Passion (VIN VMEEK31X99K234427) to Smart Center Englewood NJ. He had suspension problem. After few days they give the estimate of 3,500 dollars to fix it. This represents ¼ of the price I paid for the car. They advise to talk to my insurance. I did and my insurance approved to fix the car. In this time I rent a car and after two month my insurance paid me $900 for the rent and told me
the rent car difference will pay by me ($1,300). I talked to Mercedes…
When I purchased my Smart Car in Bloomington, MN I was told I could get service done locally without any problem because here we are!
I have watched as service locations moved to Golden Valley, MN then to Brooklyn Park, MN and now i am expected to take my car to: GET This..... Madison, WI 283 miles away!
How is that Customer service? I inquired why can't you just authorize a local vendor to do the work? Response: we can't do that.
Feeling dumb for going "Smart"
Finally, great news.
Smart USA will launch a TV, print and digital marketing campaign by year end to jump-start the struggling microcar brand that Mercedes-Benz USA took over on July 1.Continue
Hey Smart People,
Anyone know of a latch that can be installed in the electric latch for the rear glass that will allow it to be held open a couple of inches for venting without jeopardizing the security system? I had one on a corvette that I had and it worked great. Should have kept the latch.
What you see above is work from a nice man from the Washington, DC area who is a fellow smart car owner, who I got to meet very briefly in Maryland at the Cherry Blossom Run, back in April 2011.
So, y'all use the above link to check out more,…Continue
I think this site is closed. Mb and smart have not posted since June 10.
According to what we have been told, today is the day that Mercedes Benz USA is taking over smart in the U.S. I hope that some of the good things I have heard regarding the transition/takeover will be coming forth soon. I did expect some kind of 'Official' announcement on the sUSAi main page. Oh well, maybe next week.
