    Welcome Rob

    There are some pretty bright guys over here that hopefully can get you sorted out.  

    When you turn the ignition on does the display show the P?

     

    I will ask a question to our experts,  does the 451 model have the same issues as the 450 in regards to the clutch actuator wearing a hole in the fork?  If so should Rob have the three bars showing in his information display?

    Also Rob if you click on Service Options at the top of this page you will find a list of shops that have been helpful with our members in the past.  Uncle Glenn in London probably services more smarts than any dealer and has several parts cars in the warehouse as well.  If he doesn’t respond here in the next 24 hours give him a phone call and pick his brain.  I’ve always found him to be generous with his time.

  2. My 2008 Smart Fortwo Passion automatic transmission has 128k and it had been working excellent, it is nice and in very clean conditions, I love it

    4 months ago driving on the 403 near Toronto Canada with intense traffic, gears started to change up and down, up and down so in one of those standing still traffic moments I put it in neutral position and then in drive position and it didn't go, I turned off and on and gears didn't change from neutral; I turned off again and then it never even started again

    I took it to M-Benz dealership in Mississauga (Canada) for a diagnostic and quote and they said:

    Front computer to be replaced

    Gears motor to be replaced

    Starter to be replaced

    All this came to $3,500.00 CAD plus tax which is almost the value of the vehicle so they said it is not worth to do the repair

     

     

    The question is, can I repair the car in a cost -efficient economical way?

    Should I sell it as is?

    Can you help me and repair it?

     

    I would appreciate your advice
