OK, after waiting a considerable amount of time (11 months) my smart is here! Love the car, I can stand at the front of the car and actually hug it as my arm span is wider than the car. The leather package and even the heated seats got it's first and only workout when the temps dropped this week, but I could only stand the heat for about 10 minutes and had to shut it off. The morning dew got on my windshield and I was surprised that the wipers move from the inside out; guess I didn't bother to find out about that before I bought the car. No matter, it works good. The glass top allows for the sun to come in and warm up the interior but it will probably be too much in the hot Houston Summer. I had some of the typical problems you've been reading about on the forum. My gas gauge would only read 7/8th's of a tank but it remedied itself after the first fill up. In the morning when I start the car the very first turn I make gives a funny thumping sound from the right front wheel. Sounds as if the CV joint or knuckle is going out. Then, the second turn the sound does not reappear. Anyway got a call into the dealership about it.
