What is the age of your car??? Any problems??

Hi everyone!!


It's been quite a while since I have been on this site.  I just past my 2 year mark in April with owning my little car.  I must say, I am still as happy as ever with it.  I am curious tho, how many of you out there have had your little car for at least 2 years, and are YOU still as happy today as you were when you got yours?  Have you had any problems? If so, what are they?  Please let me know. I get a little concerned with the age of my car and how many…

Tax deduction???

Since it is tax time, and I bought my Smart in 2009, I was wondering if anyone knows of a tax deduction they have received since purchasing their Smart. I remember something early in 2009 about the government giving a tax rebate/deduction (of some sort) to vehicles that are good on gas consumption. Well, my little Smart has been averaging approximately 59-61 mpg. Yes, you read that right. I am not talking about the cash for clunker program that has since been gone for a long time. If anyone has… Continue

Tax deduction for Smart plus gas mileage??

Does anyone know if the purchase of a Smart is considered one of the type of vehicles for the Federal Government Car Allowance Rebate System or the Ultra Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEU), which EPA considers a "Smartway Vehicle"? I was wondering if, because it gets such good gas mileage, it would fall under the category for a tax deduction. I know a lot of people who own their Smarts are getting a wide variety of differences on their mileage, but I personally have been ranging between 48 - 51 mpg.… Continue

What's your mpg??

I was just wondering what everyone is getting on their miles per gallon. I have been averaging 45. I travel quite a lot on the freeway and am very impressed with how much I am getting. I just love my little car!!

Problems with security system and dome light

I was wondering if any of you have had any problems with the security system in their smart? Today I locked my smart and when I came out to unlock it, my key fob would not unlock. It acts like the battery is dead in the key fob and I had to manually unlock the door (and of course the alarm system goes off!) and I had to actually start the smart to get the alarm to go off. I do not know how to stop the alarm system. I also noticed there is no way to lock the door without the alarm system. The… Continue

Dumb questions

I've only had my Smart now for two weeks. I just love it! I get all the questions too, but the one thing I think I liked the most so far, is, this past weekend I was coming out of Blockbuster when a little girl, probably around 5, looked at my Smart with a great big smile on her face. Her dad was standing next to her, and as I pulled out of the parking lot, I rolled my window down and looked at the little girl with the great big smile, and told her "my car hasn't grown up yet" and she just… Continue
