Smart insider

I just looked in on the insider forum which I do from time to time, and things are very negative over there. Smart closing its doors due to $$$ crunch. Refund check bouncing.... Anyone else get that feeling over there? :eek:

Uh so all the dealers are closing and stop distributing smarts? I don't know if I want to get one if I'm not going to have a dealer to get car serviced with. I hope I'm reading this wrong.

That doesn't sound like a brand that is going away. I guess I wonder why then there's rumor of smart going bye bye.
