I just got back from having our vehicle repaired and serviced by "Uncle Glenn" in London and it was well worth the drive from Toronto! We have a diesel 2006 Smart Cabriolet with 65,000 km. Our local dealer strongly discouraged us from repairing the vehicle and listed over $5,000 worth of repairs that needed to be made. The dealer was pushing us to buy a new vehicle (no surprise). The reality is that the math simply doesn't work having a dealer service an old Smartie...better to do it yourself or find someone as trustworthy as Glenn. Here's the list of what we repaired both front springs...what a smooth ride home replaced front brake pads 2 front bearings broken bolts X2 service actuator and computer actuator sleeve oil change light bulbs new Bosch battery with 3 yr warranty replaced rear crash bar* antifreeze replacement oil spray undercoat *Several years ago our Smartie was rear-ended by a car going about 25 to 30 kpm. At the time I was proud of the fact that the only damage to the Smartie was two slight indents where the screws from the other guy's licence plate impacted. He knocked his bumper loose. The insurance-approved repair shop missed the fact the crash bar had some barely visible but potentially serious damage. It was one of Glenn's first observations. Thanks Glenn! Callum and Sarah
