How do I get inside the left headlight assembly to change the little organe light bulb next to the headlight?
and below the turnsignal. I think it is the parking lightbulb.. Any help will be appreciated..
The Orlando smartcenter 2nd Anniversary Party
Saturday January 30, 2010
The Orlando 2nd Anniversary Party-Open to all smart owners and enthusiasts will take place on January 30, 2010. This “not-to-be-missed” event we hope will be even bigger and better than last year’s event which attracted 207 smart cars.
This year’s event is not just a smart car show, meet and greet and party but will also offer the opportunity to showcase your driving skills and your smart car handling!… Continue
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
I don't want to violate the terms of this website, I just was wondering if anyone has had luck selling their car. I am distraught with the price the dealer has quoted. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
If you are buying one, plan on keeping it for awhile. They depreciate really quick!
I got rear ended in my Smart on the freeway on Friday. Traffic was slowing down; I took my foot off the gas pedal, looked in the rear view mirror and saw the Toyota Sienna also slowed down behind me. All of a sudden the van behind me accelerated and hit me at 40 - 50 mph; driver behind me must have stepped on the wrong pedal. I am 38 weeks pregnant, and thanks to the safety features in the car, I was okay. I walked out of the car okay, just bruised lip, and minor neck pains. I love this… Continue
I didn't even have mine for 2 days and I had to return it because my passenger side was making this very load whistling noise. Come to findout the manufacturers didn't put any sealant in the one corner of the panoramic window. So, I was lucky it hadn't rained. They fixed it but I had to drive their multi-colored advertisement car for 4 days. Oh my Goodness!!! I have never been approached by so many people. And some strange looks too.
Hi I am looking to buy 1 or 2 tiedown hooks that screw into the frame . One comes with the car . I need 1 or 2 more. I know I can buy from a dealer but would prefer to buy from another source ,other than from a dealer ,they are such a rip off. Thanks Ed
I'm not going to get into the issue of liking or disliking features of the Smart. Most of those of us in this group own and like our smart cars. However, I did want to share a couple of experiences I had with mine that make me like it even more.
When I bought my car over a year ago, I had to fly to Tulsa to pick it up and then drive it back home (6 hour drive). The weather was stormy with heavy rain and high winds for the entire trip--not the best conditions for driving a new car. My… Continue
This question arose in my mind after reading a susai blog that complained of the car not having room for his friends.
The thought of this has given me a 'bad back, (from crouching over this keyboard). That blogger also has caused me to waste hours of my life reading and typing in comments. Now, I am getting writers cramp in my fingers from all this unnecessary typing. My electric bill is going up because it's now dark and I have to turn on a lamp. My Internet Service Provider is… Continue
I am a 2009 Smart owner. This has been the worst purchase in my entire life. Here is why:
1) Golf cart on the Freeway, Very uncomfortable, Bad back already..
2) Compromise for only few miles per gallon, cost is high
3) No special financing like Toyota and Nissan incentives..
4) Premium Gas, High Financing by Benz, Savings are smaller and smaller
5) cannot pick up friends, any time of niece for a ball game ( only two..)
6) you will look like a Dork, every one will… Continue
WEll this seem kinda odd. Yestrday i was getting out the car and the door kinda swung back so to avoid the window from striking me on the way out i stuck my arm out to catch the door and what do you know it rubbed on the interior and gave me a rug burn. Omg! a defense move that cant be applied to the smart or else.... Wondering have anyone else experienced wound or burn due to ur SMart!?
oh and the seat almost gave me an concussion when i was leting it up for somone which is a… Continue
