Smart vs. Deer

It was a dark and foggy night. I just got in my car to go home from my sister-in-law's house. Two stop signs away, there was an open field where the high powered electrical lines ran through the neighborhood; the fog seemed thicker than pea soup on a frozen lake there. From that second stop sign, it couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 houses to reach the field but I managed to get the car up to a cool 30 mph.

Out of the corner of my eye, a flash of white fur comes dashing out…

Smart Stories from Julie's Garage - January 15, 2010

It happened. My nightmare. My Smart car, Maxwell, was hit.

On my way home from work on Wednesday, January 13th, I was in a line of cars waiting for a red light (I was 5th or 6th in line) when I looked into my rearview mirror and saw a car coming up behind me. I could see the top of the driver's head, which told me he was texting!

I watched in horror and realized he wasn't looking up to check the road. 'Crap,' I thought. 'He's not going to stop.'… Continue

Is there some kind of conspiracy against the smart???

In the first place the only "microcar" in the article is the smart. The others are mini cars. If you read the whole story you realize that the smart car was far less expensive to repair than any of the mini cars. As you know, it is one of the least expensive cars to insure as… Continue

decorations ... not the kind you thought

My smart got "re-decorated" by a Lady in a (brand-new, no less) BMW 3-series last night on the way home, so the best I am hoping for now, is that it can and will be fixed soon.

It dented the driver side tridion pretty good. At least I am fine and here to b*tch about it ... When the sign says "no-double-turn" how would you interpret that? ... am I bitter? ... you bet.

I would like anybody's suggestions though on what to look out for when it comes to repairs of the smart and… Continue

Road accidents with the smarts

I have been reading blogs and forums and I have discovered that there have already been some members that have had accidents while driving their smarts. It would be interesting to hear these stories: how the accident happened; the other car that was involved; the damage to each; and any injuries. Thus far I've only read of a couple collisions and the smart performed as designed and took the worst upon itself and the passengers at worst received a few bruises. I think this is a testament to the… Continue
