Ladies and Gentlemen:
Almost three weeks ago someone tried to steal my Smartcar, a black Cabrio. I drive her every where and often times have those days where driving a car the size of a ping pong ball gets to me. In her place I have had a horrible rental car as big as a house and have never missed my car more. I had asked the agency to give me the most fuel efficient car that they had. I got a Chevy Impala, LT so it has even more crap that I do not need and gets 17MPG (are… Continue

Anyone heard of changes in the 2010 model of our beloved Fortwo?

Over on msn.com there is a post asking people to name the worst cars in the last 25 years. The Smart is getting trashed unfairly. I'm defending the little guy, but I could use some help. Let's gang up on them.

Hey guys! It's Smartie - the new raffle car for the Northern Door Children's Center annual car raffle. And am I ever excited! My big brother, Bee Smart, was last year's raffle car. He told me that every year the NDCC raffles off a car to help raise money to cover their general operating costs. Tickets are only $20 each for a chance to win Yours Truly and $5,000 cash! Pretty spiffy, huh?
I've been cooped up in the garage all winter, so believe me when tell you how excited I am about… Continue

Hey everybody. I just watched and read all about the newest iihs crash against bigger vehicles. The iihs is saying along wit fox news and many other stations that the small cars are unsafe against larger vehicles and you should all go out and buy a bigger car. From my personal experience when I crashed my Smart against a ford focus, I was find and the other guy was injured. From being a big hit on the news to being an avoidance, I think that these results put a big dent in the minds of many… Continue

Hey everybody. I just got back from a Smart car rally. The rally consisted of Smart technicians and after reading a blog post about the transmission chip, I had to ask it to clear the air. Emily at the center told me all you have to do is contact the service center and leave your car there for about an hour and they will flash your 2008 transmission chip to the 2009 transmission chip COMPLIMENTARY! I suggest everybody to do this for the ability to shift while in automatic and to apparently have… Continue

Hey everybody. Just wanted to do a body count estimate of about how many people are showing up to the Smart Center in Fairfield event on March 5th. To all those that are unaware, it should be in your mailboxes now or momentarily. Hope all that can make it come and hopefully it will be nice weather.

May all of you smart folks have the very best of new year's, with great health, wealth and super fun RV'ing with your fortwo!
I'd like to start this blog with a request for comments about taking your smart with you when you go RV'ing.
We have lots of customers who tow their fortwo on a Smart Trailer USA, but I wonder how many drive or tow their smart to an RV park in order to have some reasonably sized wheels to run around in after arriving.
So do please add… Continue

IF you notice that your transmission is getting harder and harder to put into park and out of park, DO NOT WAIT! Contact your local Smart repair center. I just got off the phone with the CEO of the Smart Service Center in Fairfield and they say that this is a common problem. It became strange that it was harder and harder for me to get it into park and so on. I called the service center to see if my car was on the recall list for a problem just like this and they said it wasn't. When all Smart… Continue

I converted my current smart fortwo reservation to a 2009 Smart fortwo Brabus. My question is:
Does anybody know if we’re getting a Smart customized by Brabus in Bottrop, Germany or just a regular Smart with Brabus parts?
I asked the dealer in Tampa and nobody seems to know…

Hello, i have been looking at the IQ for the past couple days, there isnt just one site out there that gives you all the information you need, but i was luckey enough to find tid bits and a article in a magazine. The IQ is a so called four seater, the passenger seat sits further forward then the driver to allow more leg room to the back passenger, as for behind the driver seat, there is enough room for a child seat, or a very small friend. You have the choice of filling the car with people, or… Continue

Smart is celebrating it's 10 years of success and we are throwing a Birthday Party.
On Oct 4th we are getting together at Penske Smart Center to cut a cake and experience the Smart by driving through a small canyon road.
For more information check the events tab.
Ten years ago one of the world's most unusual production vehicles was launched on the market. It was new and excitingly different to conventional cars – the smart city coupé, now called the smart fortwo. This… Continue

When you come to own a Smart it is just not like buying another car. This experience is going to change your life for good. The moment you take the keys turn the ignition on and drive off the dealers parking lot you have just stepped into the world of being a celebrity. Your life from this point on is going to change. The trip to mall or super market is going to take longer because you have a line of people who have questions about your car. Your coworkers are going to be jealous of you as you… Continue

I am going to be creating a Connecticut Smart car club! I am trying to rally every Smart car owner in Connecticut to meet at Heavenly Doughnuts on Route 34. I have not discussed with Earnie (doughnut owner) about the meet. It might be every other Saturday. I know that the Cruise night that I take my car to is on Sunday and two to three Smart cars show up, and I see plenty of Smart cars in Connecticut almost every single day. Spread the word and get other members in New York through Connecticut… Continue

I just bought a new classical music cd, and was listening to it on my way home. I stopped at a red light, and all of a sudden I heart "Nice Smart Car". For a second I thought that came from the cd, but it couldn't be, then I thought maybe I was crazy. Then I started looking around, a guy from the ambulance behind me was waving at me. He said "Nice Smart Car" over the ambulance broadcast, I thought that was so FUNNY.

I came out of the bank to find several people gathered around my car, gawking, pointing, asking questions. After they left, I turned and looked at the car parked next to me. Not a single person paid it any attention.
He shouldn't park that Jag so close to my Smart if he wants attention.…

How long have you waited to get your Smart? Unfortantely, I signed up in April and was told it may take up to six months. I'm still holding out hope that it won't be that long. I saw some people waitied over a year before taking delivery of their Smart.
I wonder why its taking so long for Smart cars to make it to the States. There are plenty of well established Mercedes dealership here and I would think that Mercedes would have no trouble running things smoothly. I haven't gotten a… Continue
