  1. Hi Jason, This is exactly what is happening to my unit right now. My unit has been in a constant boot loop for at least a month now... Did you end up finding a solution? Thanks, Michelle
  2. For those of you who got their headlights changed under warranty, I assume they didn't make you pay for the bulb?? I just went to get mine done, I mentioned to them that it still may be covered under warranty, he looked at me funny told me I'd still have to pay for the bulb, took my keys and went to go fix it.... The other day I had called ahead, they asked for my vin number saying some 2011s aren't covered anymore but some are still covered. This guy today didn't ask me for my vin, nor was it on the receipt. He also changed only one. I see most of you got both done when you went in. I know my car still has until at least September for warranty.... And only has 22,000kms Just curious, thanks I paid $15 dollars for the one bulb, which isn't totally unreasonable considering they changed it for free.
  3. I am hoping to find a used bike rack for my 451 smart. I need both the main rack and the second bike attachment, but am willing to buy them separately if needed. If anyone knows of one looking for a new home, please contact me. Thanks. I live in surrey area but am willing to pick up anywhere in the lowermainland.
  4. Aww that's too bad, I forgot I'm working Saturdays in May. Sorry, have a good time!
  5. I may be interested as well
  6. Sorry I knew what you meant. I just would like to check out where it is. I'd like to go there some time and it would be handy to know where it is and what the place looks like
  7. I wouldn't mind meeting some other smarts. I have been busy and sort of forgot about my planning an event. I'm not sure if I'm free that day but if I am I might stop by. I also wouldn't mind checking out Flying Tiger/Fast Eddies
  8. I have Kumho Solus KH16, have any idea on how they are in the winter?
  9. No worries. I was thinking we go on a drive and then go out to eat. We just need to decide when and where . The tomahawk place looks neat. If enough are interested in bio-diesel co-op we can look into that. We will have a mix of diesel and gassers, but either way it looks interesting.I was already thinking Vancouver would most likely be the area we meet in. I will look into some areas we could drive, see if there is any events that may be in the area in November. Locals can keep an eye out too.
  10. Thanks Mike. I'll look into that!On a side note, not really geared to this conversation... What is your opinion on snow tires?? I have been told (by a non-car person) that all season tires should be fine for winter. I know our winters aren't as bad as others in Canada. I just would like to hear what others think about winter tires, and if it would be more important with smart cars rather then regular cars... They aren't cheap but if it is a necessity I will buy some.
  11. Us new Smartie's think its about time we have another event here in the lower mainland!! We have had a bit of a look through the old forums and have seen no recent events. We need to show all of those other car owners that we are all proud smart owners!! This may be a bit of a group effort in organizing. We need to see what day of the week works best for everyone, what time of day, etc. I was thinking we need to give at least a month before we get together, so November some time. Any out of towners that are interested let us know if there is a certain time of month that works best for you. I'm thinking any time between early November and early December. Anyways, lets play this by ear. Anyone who has been a part of this before can give us a hand in organize the drive because I'm totally new to this. We'll also have to decide on a location.
  12. Well I guess that does it! I'll post something in the BC forum to see how many would be interested.
  13. I definitely agree that it can be a pain having to open the car with the key fob all the time. I have had it multiple times where I have turned the car on only to remember I still need to open the back. I do think it is a good idea to have it only on the key fob because I could easily see someone lock their key in the car. Also in the manual there is a warning of not having your car running while the back is open because carbon-monoxide can enter the vehicle. This may be one way to keep this from happening.
  14. Hi LILCAR! Welcome to the club! I have also been looking into whether there are get together's in the area. According to 'Mike T', meets in our area have really fizzled out in the last few years. I haven't heard of anything since I have registered on here, or seen any recent events in the area by scanning through older threads.I'd be all for trying to start up doing events in the area again. But I am new as well. We could post an event and see what kind of responses we can get.
  15. Update on my latest tank of gas! I did a lot of freeway driving for this tank so this time it is 6.4L/100km.I want to thank all of you for all the information, it was very helpful. I have learnt so much from just asking about this. I am now switching to premium, I had no idea before that Smart cars were built to use Premium. I guess I may have known this if I had been given an updated manual but I was given the old manual which looks to be geared towards diesel...But now I know that my mileage was higher because of the short distance drives to work, and that it doesn't necessarily mean there is something wrong with my car. My only concern was for the car, I love my car and don't want anything to be wrong with it. I also don't want to get stuck somewhere if that was some sort of sign that it needed a check up.Thanks a bunch! Michelle
