  1. Since owning the smart, I've experienced a dry gear shift which needed lube. The poor little bugger refused to shift into gear and had to be top loaded to Smart.I also experienced a broken rag top button. I guess I pushed it too hard and it fell down into the casing. Thankfully, smart fixed me right up before I was drenched by rain! :)Also, I noticed after unlocking the driver's door it's getting harder and harder to open with the handle. I'll need to take it in so it can be checked.Finally, I noticed I lost one of my mud flaps in the winter. I'll need to replace that soon. Does anyone know of a local US seller of these items. I purchased my original set from the UK.Other than these items, no problems with my little guy who is a gaser.Thanks,Regina
  2. Hi Guys,If time permits, I'll try to keep in touch. With all the layoffs, everyone is paranoid so work productivity is way up! :-)Anyway, I love my car and I still want my ferrari red paint job. But with the economy in the dumps, I can't justify the expense. I do more saving than anything else which is great, but very boring. But I can't be too unhappy because I paid off all my credit card debt (except for my rolling balance on my State Farm card). Thankfully, I'm earning SF dollars with my limited purchases. So far I've earned $122 which I plan to apply to my insurance premium when it comes due in July. That means the cost of my insurance will drop from $500/6mths to $378/6mths. Thank God!Say, when I had the headlights replaced, I was surprised that Mercedes did it for free. Is that normal under the warranty period? Currently, I have 15K+ miles on the little guy and my two years are up on 2/5/10. Gosh time flies when you spinning around in a smart!Regina
  3. Hi Gang,It's been five months since my last posting. However, I am still a smartalec!Anyway, last weekend, I took my little guy into the shop to change out the headlights since one was out. To my surprise, there were four campaigns (which are smart upgrades/mtce) outside of my mileage scheduled service. Anyway, one of these campaigns was a computer upgrade which is suppose to help it go faster. Well, I now feel a marked improvement in the little guy's engine performance especially when taking off from a stopped position or when I punch it to go faster.Here's to a safe summer drive for all of us.Your NYC girl - who always has her top down (except during heavy rains)!Go smart!Regina
