A really horribly funny story

Hey everybody. Here is a funny and true story that you all need to hear because this might happen to you. I was driving my car to my friends one day and the ABS light went on. For all of you that do not know what that is, it is the airbag light aka guy in the seat with airbag in his face light. Anyhow, I thought that it was related to my accident, but I was wrong. About a week before I brought my car back to the shop, they had to replace the passenger seatbelt mechanism because it was not fully… 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

Smart Car St. Patricks Day Parade

Hey Everybody. I just got back from the St. Patrick day parade. Eileen set up Smart cars to be in the parade. I want to thank Eileen for her incredible services she has done to make arrangements at the bar afterward and to set us up to be in the parade. To view the pictures, look on my page because it was having a hard time uploading to the blog for some reason.

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

Hello everybody. Today, I saw a multitude of Smart cars and am looking for their owners. First off, They were all seen on route 34 in Derby and Orange Connecticut. I saw an all black smart car with red dots on either side, a white and black smart car, a white and solver smart car, and a blue and black Smart car. The owners were older gentlemen and I would like to talk to them to discuss a Smart car meeting/rally in the area that we live in. If you have any information, please write in this blog… 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 HATE Smart Service

I am fed up with Smart. I was in a bad accident with my car and they fixed everything they could. I had a huge list of issues after I got my car back. I then addressed these issues to the Fairfield Collision Center. They said that they would fix the issues. I did not notice a thing changed to fix my car besides a dent in the roof rail. I am very disappointed and am starting to hate Smart now. I was probably the most dedicated Smart car owner of all time too and if you beg to disagree, you have… Continue

Hello fellow Smart car owners. I am having an unusual issue. After my accident and about 5 days into driving my car after getting i back from the FCC, my ABS light and ESC light both went on. This is scaring me because I now don't have ABS and ESC according to the manual. I am going to see if the dealership is open Columbus day to solve this because everything is under warranty. Does anybody have any idea or want to guess at what the problem is before I bring it in? Also, is there any way I can… 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

Aftermarket parts are an awesome idea to make your Smart car more unique than any other. Although some aftermarket parts will void your current warranty, the aftermarket part should come with a warranty for itself. IF anybody needs any recommendations for anything about their smart car, please feel free to ask. I researched into the smart car for 6 years before mine finally arrived and was one of the first people to put my name down for the reserve once it came up. I am currently working on a… Continue
