Hi Russell, I love my electric Smart. it is such a smooth ride. I love not having to pump gas into it. I love not having to worry about oil changes and smog checks. it's great. it doesn't get as many miles as the Gas Smart Cars... but I'm sure that is something that will change in time.
Russell, I would like to attend the convention, but it would be a long drive for two 70 year olds from Virginia Beach. We could fly in. That would take 5 hours, compared with 4 days driving. But It would be great to drive my smart in the Rockies.
I saw your question about the wrench and 400 miles coming up on your display in the Colorado owner's group. I realize you already got an answer, but I just wanted to give you a little bit more information. The message is actually known as the maintenance service interval display and comes up about a month before the next service interval (based on last reset) and displays the days or distance to Kiwi's next required maintenance. There is also more information on this message and others available in the operator's manual.
Russ, I forgot to ask last night: Did you finish reading the smart book yet? If so: Could you bring it with you on Saturday (if you are coming on the drive)? I am thinking of putting together another smart quiz.
Hello Smarties. Just talked to Paul and he is interested in MB West. He has put in a call to them. Let's hope it all works out. Paul was really choked up that we are all behind him and support him so strongly. He is very grateful to the Smart community. By the way, the manager and service manager at MB said that they would love to come to our meetings and discuss service and accessories for the Smart brand. Also to keep us all in the loop of what is going on in Smartland. Hey everyone, come to the Smart meetings and you can see what's going on too! The 2nd Wed of every month at Brothers BBQ 6th and Washington. 7pm. We are going to get some drives going too so give us your imput!!!!
