I had an early reservation on, but also signed up for the waiting list at the dealership. I got a call in just a couple of weeks, and drove home that night! My dealer said most of the others on the waiting list wanted a convertible, so I got lucky, plus--the waiting list is a lot longer now that more people have heard about and seen them. When I called smartusa to cancel my order they were very nice and glad to hear I had gotten an orphan, and said that my cancellation just helped move someone else on up the list! My deposit refund check came in a week or two, and all is well. So do check with your dealer about getting on their orphans list, even if you've placed an online order--it might help you get one sooner!

I reserved in April 2008 and all I could think about afterwards was the Smart car. As the weeks went on it just got worse. After a month and a half I had a day off from work to finally go take a test drive. Hoping that would ease my anticipation a little. While I was sitting at the dealer waiting I over heard a sales person on the phone calling people on her orphan list trying to get rid of an orphan Smart. After she hung up I ran over there and said I'll take it. She said OK! The rest is history.

The moral of the story is call your dealer and get added to the orphan list and don't be too picky. Also visit or call the dealership often and find out when the next shipment comes in. If you get a Smart that doesn't have any of the options you want thats OK, you have a Smart NOW. The basic car is the same in all models. You still have your reservation and in a year or so you can trade in your orphan for the one you really want. It won't loose any of its value and plus you will get an '09 Smart.

Sorry you have to wait for the funnest car on the planet. It was easier for those of us that ordered in March of 2007 because we didn't have to see other cars on the road and get jealous. Keep in touch with your local club and go to the events. Someone might be a single and let you ride along and enjoy the fun. Good luck with the wait. It's worth it in the long run. Alan
