One owner 2008 Passion, blue on silver, 84,200 km. Clean and in great shape except for clutch which needs work and cracked right rear reluctor ring. Always maintained by MB, but they want too much to fix it now for my taste so am selling as is. (we also have a 2009 Limited Three which we are keeping) No other issues, passes clean air and should safety OK once above items are fixed. Good summer tires on stock alloy rims, and good winter tires on steel rims included. AC works well. Have replaced starter, alternator, brake light switch, oil pressure switch (due to small leak) Transmission RPM sensor (which was not the problem with the clutch), Muffler flex pipe, etc. Asking $1200 as is OBO. From non-smoking pet free home in Burlington Ontario. More photos available firstname.lastname@example.org
kajc67 posted a topic in Operation and Maintenance: 451 Model, 2008-2015, gasolineHello All, I have a 2008 451 Cabriolet. A common problem on this model is the tailgate will sometimes not open due to a part failure. This is the second time this has happened to me, but this time seems to be different. A few years ago I had to replace the actuator, which required me drilling two holes in to the tailgate from the inside so that I could slip in a small screwdriver to release the locking mechanism so this step is already done. I automatically assumed it was the actuator again and replaced it, but it didn't work. I read in forums that it could be the microswitch, which is part of the handle you squeeze to open the tailgate so I replaced it, but this too, didn't work. I have checked fuses and they are fine. As well the front and passenger door locks work fine. I don't know what else it could be. Has anyone else experienced this? UPDATE: Can anyone tell me if when the tailgate is locked does the actuator engage when you grab the handle or does it not function when locked. Does this make sense? I need to narrow this problem down so I need to know if when locked it deactivates the actuator or if the actuator still makes that operational noise, but just won't open (I cannot remember). I am considering replacing the automatic lock mechanism on the right side of the tailgate. It's the last thing I can think of that I can do myself before taking it in to a dealership.
Hey everyone! My name is Jeff, and I have been looking into purchasing a used Smart. based on my budget, I can afford either a 2005, 2006 or 2008. I do very little high way driving, but I do visit family every once and a wile out of town. I heard gas smarts are better for winter as they produce more heat that diesel engines, but I have no idea what I am really doing. I will attach links bellow with the ones I am looking at. I am a total car newbie and this will be my first vehicle. I'd really like it to be a smart, but I don't know the first thing about buying a used smart. Any and all help would be super appreciated! 2008 Smart: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/edmonton/2008-smart-fortwo-pure-extremely-low-mownthly-paymnets-apply-n/1194181109?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true 2005 Smart: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/edmonton/smart-for-two-2005-passion/1197815490?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true 2006 Smart: http://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/edmonton/2006-smart-fortwo-pure/1197343289?enableSearchNavigationFlag=true I am leaning towards the 2008 because I believe they have cruise control, which is super important if I visit family outside the city. Thanks everyone In advance!! I can't wait to own a smart; been a dream of mine since the first came here in Canada. - Jeff
simplex17 posted a topic in Introduce YourselfMy 2008 smart passion won't go into park. This just happened today. I was coming home and pulled into my driveway and put the car in park and instead of showing P on the dash it showed a blinking N. It drives and shifts fine. I moved through the gears a few times and still comes up a blinking N. After trying a few times I left it in park with the N still blinking and let off the break to see if it would roll back and it didn't. It felt as if it was in park. I also can not remove the key. It will not turn all the way back to the removal position. That really bothers me because I only have one key right now and have to leave it unlocked. The car will not start in the park position. I have to move the shifter to neutral in order to start the car. On another note when in N, R, or D the small lights what show what gear you are in near the bottom of the shifter come on, but the small P does not light up when I put it in park. Any ideas what could be the problem?
