Seattle: Out with the old, in with the new

Got the following e-mail this morning:

>Hi smart Owner:
>
>We wanted to let you know that effective immediately, smart sales and service has moved and will be under new ownership:
>
>smart center of Seattle
>600 East Pike Street
>Seattle, WA 98122
>Located within the Mercedes-Benz of Seattle dealership
>Phone: (206) 324-5959
>Sales Contact: John Ramstetter
>Service Contact: Dave Schuelke
>
>You're part of the family so make sure you reach out to our new smart center. They will be happy to share with you the products and services they offer.

I haven't been on these forums in a while. Was this expected?

I got the same e-mail. Kudos to someone in the smart part of the MB organization. Thank you.

Unfortunately, the dealership's location is in the heart of Seattle. Not the place to be in rush hour traffic which is usually when most businesses are open. Not smartusa's fault ... just the way it is. At least we still have a servicing dealership in the area.

Sigh,

Dan

I will continue to work on my car myself.

Dan, after you get a chance to check them out, let me know whether they treat you well. Even though I work on the car myself, I was getting parts from sc Seattle and want to know whether I should take my business to the new place.

Hi Alan,

If you're doing the work on your car yourself, you'll probably do better working through Smart Online Parts .

Regards,

Dan

If the people at the local dealer aren't jerks, I prefer to do business locally, even if it costs more.

hello, just signed up for the forums as we just purchased a 2013 Passion from the Mercedes Dealership in Seattle. They were great to purchase from, don't know how service will be. As mentioned earlier it's a tough location squished into central capitol hill in Seattle but they seemed genuinely interested in us even though we weren't picking up a new SLK350. The Smart is so small just pull up right in front, there's usually room. I'll be interested in anyone getting service there.

I should pull in there in my 6.8L Triton V10 E450 motorhome with the car in tow and ask "Can you give this thing a tune-up.... (pause...pause...pause) and wash the motorhome?"
