This was announced Feb 11. It looks like they worked on closings first.

As for no mention of smart on the M-B USA website, there is no mention of Sprinter either (another separate operation like smart USA.) On the smart USA site, this now appears at the bottom of the "About Us" page:

Quote:
The Penske Automotive Group distributed smart cars in the U.S. until June 30, 2011. On July 1, 2011, smart became part of a subsidiary of Mercedes-Benz USA. Mercedes-Benz USA has responsibility for Mercedes-Benz vehicles as well as Sprinter Vans in the U.S.

I purchased 3 new mercedes: 1994 E320, 1998 ML320, and a 2009 smart cab on 8/13/09. The first 2 mbs had excellent follow-up after the sale, many, many phone calls seeking satisfaction with product, both by sales department and the service department soon after service was rendered. Also many "thanks for your business....
can you recommend us to any of your family or friends" phone calls and e-mails.
From the Smart, none of this, not even when they were going out of business at Smart Car of Devon, Pa. Sad to say the least.

$6335 to fleece a Passion Coupe isn't such a bad idea when some owners have reported $7000 repair bills to gundeck engine and transmission problems.....or those $500 DC shift motors...or platinum-plated clutches....

And WHEN the sunroof crazes......who could care!...(d^:]

gundeck? Shipmate - really? I've mostly ignored your posts in the past but this one has boggled my mind. How is it relevant to this thread?

Regards,

Dan (someone who knows what gundeck means)
