The MB dealer that it shares the lot with is probably one of the top 10 MB dealers in the country. They put Smart right up front so they had good visibility although it is a bad location. When they were Mission Imports (where the Jag dealer is now), it was a very good location with freeway visibility.
They did not promote the brand, even when I offered to have them be a sponsor for the Laguna Niguel parade, they declined (MB is a sponsor), did not even want to participate as an entry or part of the existing entry. Whats funny is they have their biggest marketing push for Smart in the past few weeks. I was getting like 2-3 emails a week from them. To me, their biggest problem was service, the worst service dept for both Smart and MB. So although very far for me, Cerritos is probably a lot better, can't imagine it's worse.
I'm sure we can count on Boris to get parts for us if Smart goes out of business altogether.
