You might want to have a windsheild or two handy.

Several were broken during the dragon caravans last year.

Thanks tiger! Sorta kinda related - guy on smartusainsider trying to convince people they need to change transmission oil at 30K miles (might have something to do with him being an Am**il dealer )

What's the smart USA recommend interval for the change, if any?

Found it - no service interval stated.

So, do you have new clutches for 2008 cars available? Mine had trouble with reverse yesterday and I'm hoping the clutch holds up to the trip. Have you had luck replacing clutches out of warranty?

Smart has us do several test before replacing clutches, it could be a shifter too. So repairs like that will need further testing, and we do not stock the clutches, they are ordered overnight on an as needed basis.

can you touch it with the tip of your finger? if so, you might put some gum on your finger and then see if you can get the dime to stick to the gum, lifting it out. worked for me in the past with an old Civic I had.

Telescoping magnet (about the size of your standard tire-pressure gauge) ... handy when accidentally dropping nuts & bolts in tight spaces ...
