Say hello to my leetle friend

It wasn't an army of assassins but it was an army.

First day out in the new car and I've never been this scared in an upper class white neighborhood. The street ended in a cul-de-sac/traffic circle (there was grass in the middle) - it was lousy with kids. I wove through the skateboarding, running, ball-tossing crowd carefully avoiding the battery powered miniature jeep whose toe-headed driver played chicken with me. Apparently I was the chicken.



Next time kid. Next… Continue

Warranties

The extended warranty offered by my Smart dealer seems very expensive. I was thinking of buying an extended warranty from a third party service, specifically Warranty Direct of Uniondale NY.

Well, I drove SunnyD from ABQ to Laramie, WY and back again, which put over 1,000 miles on her. I have to say, I was very disappointed in the performance with the wind, which I encountered almost all the way there, and all the way back. But then again, what can I expect with a tiny little Smart car? Ugh. I was exhausted.… Continue

Birmingham Smartcenter Experience

It took a lot of willpower, but after we went on the orphan list in Birmingham three weeks ago we didn't call and bother them once until last Friday. Oh, we'd thought about bringing them pastries or beer, Tide tickets, puppies - anything - but we didn't. I'm proud of that. Delayed gratification is a sign of maturity, right?



In the previous weeks, we'd heard the 'call of the orphan' from the Atlanta dealer (where we'd registered as prospective 'parents') twice. But both times the cars… Continue

Moving date

The DDE is still moving daily. It is now at 9/12/2008 - 12/11/2008. Wont be long and it will be back at the original DDE date of 9/16/2008 - 12/14/2008. Why move it just to let it slide back into the original spot. This is starting to really annoy the crap outta me. I thought I was moving up but I guess I am just sliding down the slide ya ya I Know it could be longer but I am getting very impatient!!!! I WANT THE DDE TO STOP MOVING!!! It stays at 11 days within DDE (FYI.) And yes I have read… Continue
