We purchased our Fortwo April 2008. My wife commutes from Hartford to NYC twice a week and loves the car. The majority of the 22k miles is freeway driving. She experienced a "no shift" situation, shifter moves in all directions, no gears (not to be confused with the under lubricated shifter switch, we already fixed that ourselves months ago after being stranded in a dark parking lot for an hour). Dealer stated there is a service bulletin on this clutch problem, replaced the clutch, no charge. Now two weeks later, the transmission makes a "ratcheting sound", the "D" for Drive on the dash begins to blink and the Service light (little wrench) is blinking. Oh, by the way, the 20k mile service is over $500. Our little fun car is becoming a not so fun car.
