Sorry for a typo there. I reserved in August 07 and expect to get it in January. 16 months and still waiting.

Reserved in August 08 and have been told mine will be here in January. It appears to me from reading this site that different areas seem to get more cars, and some more quickly get cars than others. I am in north Atlanta and very rarely ever see a smartie, although the dealer recently told me they had delivered 400 in all.

I also reserved on 3-01-08 and converted my reservation to a Brabus. My DDE is now Jan- Mar 09. I thought my DDE had gotten better because I changed to a Brabus. It was July-Sept 09 before I changed it. Now I am not so sure this had anything to do with it. No smart of any kind yet. It is hard to wait but hang in there. It will be worth the wait.

Reserved August 2, 2007, we took delivery Saturday December 6, 2008.

We reservered 3-01-08 and bought an orphan 10-11-08. Our car is still on order with a DDE of Jan-Mar. Good luck.

From the time I put my $99 down, it was March of 2007 until last week (late Nov 2008).

I don't know why the DDE are different depending of where we live but for what is worth. I reserved in Dec. 27, 2007 and yesterday got my dealer's call. Jack will be here at the end of January, that will be exactly 13 months. Hopefully now that I have "the call", the date will not change. Good luck to you all!

The last I heard from the dealership the wait on a smart ordered now is 18 months. I am sure it has to do with them opening the markets in China but not adding more factories as of yet. hopefully they will add another factory soon.

That is long! I waited 9 1/2 months and that felt like forever. Hope you both get that happy phone call soon!

Yup, I've been waiting since around Aug 07. My car is coming in right after the first of the year. It's been a loooong wait. You are not alone.
