Got my yellow Smart Cabrio! Battery already dead :^(

I just bought a 2008 yellow Smart Cabrio. I love it! I'm just figuring out the ins and outs of Smart ownership. After just a few days the car wouldn't start. From what I've read, this is a common problem. Will AAA jump start a smart?

Don't know why not. It's just a car. Just show them were it's located. Not a common issue. 6 year old battery. We just replaced ours.

Good Luck

Welcome to the asylum aka SCoA Forum.

Yes, it is a common problem that batteries don't last forever but hardly unique to smart.

Yes, smart is an automobile thus AAA membership will work just like on any other vehicle.
