Do you think the smart is a "uncar"?

Hi, y'all.

DVI has just put up the new ad campaign on what do you think of the "unbig. uncar." theme.  Using the new site is quite different. You need to scroll down to see all the pages (kinda as if you were using a iPad or a Android tablet.  There is lots of references to us (smart owners and smartUSAinsider) on the new site.


What do you think?

Case Number for repair

Does anyone have contact info/phone to get a case number for a repair? My car is 6 weeks past warranty and I prefer the company to pick up the tab. The defect should have prompted a recall, but has not & I'm having a little difficulty getting through to the right department/person. The dealer instructed me to call smart Car to get a case number and representative for the issue. Thanks!

Transmission Problems in 2009 Smart Fortwo Passion

Is anyone having a problem w/the 2009 Smart Fortwo Passion's transmission? With tons of blogs online about the issue, Smart USA doesn't seem to be concerned at all. No recalls.

Once I turned the car off, it wouldn't start again & the dreaded three bars appeared. We tried the "teach-in" fix & it worked temporarily before acting up again. It…

On School Parking Lots

Few things are as risky as a high school parking lot. Driving the smallest car in the school almost triples that risk around where I am. Known as "That Chick With The Smart Car" or "That Crazy Chick With The Tiny Car", I've gotten my share of glares, and aggravated beeping, and mostly snarky comments about whether my car will make it over the speed mountain the city placed in front of our school.

Usually, I attempt to get one of the closer, end spaces, within view of the far windows…

Here we go!

I guess I'll use this blog to describe my time as a student in Iowa with my Smart Car, and the journey to figure out just how effective my car is in different conditions. I guess I should first tell people who I am and how I got Alice.


I'm currently a senior in high school in Iowa on the precipice of finding out what I'll be doing for the next 5 years of my life. I have one of approximately 5 smart cars in my entire county, which is cause of more than enough attention, good…

Hi there!

Some guy hit my Smart while parked the other day and left. I took it to the mechanic and he said the tie rod is bent, we have to replace it, plus it needs a wheel alignment.  It happens I have to buy the gearbox, $550!! the tie rod doesn't come by itself. 

I just wanted to post this info, so you guys take care while driving and parking......
