I am just passing on what I was told by the driver that towed my smart last spring. He said the bumper tow hook holes were not too sturdy and he has seen them fail. He hooked on somewhere underneath and pulled it onto the flatbed. Just don't want to hear about you having problems as it is a sure way to wreck a trip.
Go to www.evilution.co.uk. Click on common questions and then click on the "look here" in the question about the service light. This should give you the way to reset your service wrench. This is a good site to bookmark.
Yea I thought the tow hooks would be a lot more but I could not find them for less. The wife and I travel with a motorhome with Harleys and got the smart to take along as well so I've been looking at ways to tie it down. Also saw where you are a retired telephone man so this is one old retired telephone man talking to another one.
Ya the chip is fixed. I can see the spot if I look at it right but thats ok at least I didnt have to pay anything for the repair. So I am happy and over it hopefully I got the little stuff outta the way right away!
I'm glad other people out ther are also towing the smart. We tow our jeep with the Blue ox and will use the blue ox base plate for our smart. I think I will have it installed. My wife says sometimes when I fix things, they get more broken. P.S. we live in southern california. When the gas comes down we plan on taking some trips but probably not until next year. as our vacation cruise will take up our travel money this year. Keep in touch. Jim and Kaye
Hi Eddie i dont have my car yet but have talked to others that have and they all tell me that they are towing behind RVs and that they are not having any problems also talked to smart rep and was told that the car can be towed without any problems igave you the stock numbers for base plates and wireing and the cost found these on puter with help of other owners that are towing as to cost for installing havent talked to any one about doing the work but others have told me they installed their own and had no problem doing the work so im guessing it cant be to hard good luck. Have you got your car yet ? I ordered the yellow with black wished i had mine already
