i am the proud owner of a very used 2005 diesel Smart convertible (label says Passion.)
I've had it 4 days..it was in impulse buy.
This is the craziest car I've ever owned..its like a Tardis, it feels big on the inside and small on the outside.
My wife and I just love to drive this, and I'm looking forward to all the information on the Forum which comes highly recommended by Google.
I have two questions right off the bat someone may know the answer to.
1. there is a a little what looks like a flat tire on the dash between the Tach and the clock. I have no idea what it does.
its not shown in the owners manual, and i cant seem to see a photo of it on the internet.
The light only comes on with the headlights,
oddest thing ive ever seen.
if anyone knows what it is I would be greatful
2. I know the transmissions are odd, I expect that, but i cant tell if the clutch is slipping or thats the way its supposed to be.
in A mode accelerating the car lurches between shifts, to the point that you wonder if its ever going to shift, and then it does.
And when starting from a stop, its almost like there is a delay in if its going to go foward or not when you push the gas.
But once you get going it goes. No issues going up hills and i had it on the highway and it runs great
Ive seen videos and notes about this type of issue but is there a way to tell if its normal or clutch type issues.
