smart Center Weston, Fla. - gone

I wrote yesterday to make an appt. for our 30K mi maint (we are actually at 23K but its is time for the 3-yr) and to have the smart Drive cradle installed and get the tip of the blinker stalk...

They'll do the service but won't install parts anymore. This is their new e-mail signature:
FIAT Service
Rick Case FIAT
3500 Weston Rd
Davie, FL 33331
So we are now two-time orphans. Our original dealer, smart Center Coral Gables... gone. Our backup, smart Center Weston... gone.

This particular smart Center Weston was purpose-built adjacent to a Honda/Hyundai dealership. The service bays were narrower than for normal cars. I wonder if they can recycle them for Fiats.

I too have lost my dealer in Denver. With no indication from Jill of a replacement.

But hey it sure is a fun car to drive!

The gentleman at the now no-longer smart Center Weston has just advised me that
Quote:
"I noticed you have a prepaid service plan. In that case unfortunately, only Smart dealers will be able to honor that."
So anyone out there with prepaid maintenance or warranty contracts, beware.

Mentioned numerous times, but M-B USA is not in charge until July 1st and there are legal implications involved that will keep them quiet until that date (based on info so far.) smart USA (PAG) has been posting news of dealer changes on smartUSAinsider.com as the the changes become effective.
