  1. Well, test drove Smartzuuk's lifted Fortwo. It drives the same as my stock one. Thanks to Daystar for putting out a well designed, cheap and useful lift. His car is as stable as mine, rides a little smoother due to the larger tires and takes road irregularities better too. I may have to get a lift for my Smart too (wife said to go for it!). Last winter there was about 5 to 7 days when the snow was too deep on the streets to drive my Smart. The additional two inches plus larger tire size should make the difference to be able to drive it every day.
  2. Had fun for a while! Now need a larger vehicle. Features air conditioning and heated seats, comes with both summer and winter tires on rims c/w tire pressure monitor sensors. Extended warranty to August 2013. 50,000 kms. Located in Prince george, BC Asking $10,000 obo.
  3. All oil retaileers are supposed to take your old oil back.
  4. You haven't been on a road trip til been on the road for 30 days and driven 11,900 Kms. Check it out: http://clubsmartcar.com/index.php?showtopic=18945&st=0
  5. I find that the rear jacking point is near the balance point of the 451, so I change both tires with one lift on each side.
  6. Compared to a 6.4 litre powerstroke diesel V8, how much exhaust emission can a 699cc or 1 litre CDI engine put out? There should be a lower limit on engine size where current emission limits would not apply.
  7. They only stopped here for gas and continued on to Williams Lake about three hours south of here.
  8. I saw them this afternoon when they arrived in Prince George at about 4 pm. I wonder why it took them 8 hours to drive from Fort St. John - it's normally a 4.5 to 5 hour drive.
  9. I can't find their itinerary...anybody know when they are coming through Prince George? I wouldn't mind trying to meet up with them.
  10. well, sort of...the driver's one was 1 cm too short.
  11. Changed the windshield wipers with Canadian Tire Exact fit wipers...and they actually did fit!
  12. My 2008 Pure has had similar problems occasionally. Usually happens when shifting from drive to reverse. I just cycle the shifter through park and the reverse has engaged every time so far... For those of you who have had serious problems like this, please contact either Transport Canada Vehicle Recalls at http://www.tc.gc.ca/eng/roadsafety/safeveh...ns-index-76.htm or the US NHSTA at http://www.safercar.gov/ and file a complaint. they can't help us if we don't tell them our problems.
  13. Tried it...couldn't make it work. I guess I'll try again at 45,000 kms.
  14. The problem with doing your own oil changes on the 451 is that you have to take it to the dealer to have them reset the service interval clock. Make sure you have receipts for the oil and filter(s).
  15. My wife got the 451 stuck in a snowdrift in the driveway last winter - she put it in neutral, got out and pushed it out herself!
