Good job Keith,


Thank you for collecting and sharing this valueable information. I count 27 dealers but we'd better just count
on 26.
Things do not look good for San Juan PR.

I live in York, PA, and would like to buy a Smart EV, my question is service.
Where do I get it worked on for things only a dealer can do?
The closest one on this list is Euro Motorcars - Bethesda, MD.
That is 2-3 hours from me depending on traffic.
Thank you

Looks as if Euro Motorcars is you're only choice for smart dealer service.
You maybe better off looking at less of a limited niche car than something more mainstream EV.

I have found several Smart ED for 5,000 in the area.
Next step up is Nissan Leaf, for 7-8K.
I have a Nissan dealer 5 mins away.
So I guess leaf it is.
Was hoping to take the cheaper route.
They get close to the same mileage.

You have found "several" smart ED's for $5,000 "in the area" with the other vehicle going for a couple to a few grand more, but the other dealer is "5 minutes away" and you hope to "take the cheaper route" and justify the cars being nearly the same because they "get close to the same mileage."

Or, you're willing to pay a few grand more because the other dealer is 5 minutes away while there are several smart ED's "in the area" all because of the convenience 5 minutes away brings? :crying:

Sorry for the confusion.
Nearest Smart dealer is 2-3 hours away depending on traffic.
I have found 2-3 Smart ED's for under 5K, locally to me.
I don't want to have to travel that far for dealer services.

So that leaves moving up to a Nissan Leaf at 7-8K.
I have a Nissan dealer 5 mins from me.
Plenty of Leafs in my area, and more than one dealer.
Ironically, the Smart has a better battery than the leaf.

I hope that clear up the confusion.

I just may give up the search till spring,
I don't like the cold.

Closest smart dealerships to me now. West, East, and North East. Colorado, Illinois and Kentucky, are all over 500-550 miles away.

Chevy Bolt, 2 miles, BMW i3s, 7 miles, Nissan Leaf 3 miles. Tesla 10 miles. Charging stations, all over the metro area too. Sad for smart.

Maintenance is super easy to diy, and parts can be purchased online. The only problem is if a part breaks. Repairs would be difficult, but if you do some research you may find an independent mechanic that is knowledgeable. Just remember, other than the battery, motor, and controller. Most of the parts on the car are the same as a gas powered car, and there's plenty of mechanics that will work on an ICE smart.

Close dealer = Peace of Mind or maybe you just don't feel like crawling on the floor wrenching on your smart.

His dealer is 120 miles away.
His car, if still under warranty needs to be serviced by a authorized service center NOT some shade tree mechanic found around the block that he has to pay for himself or even a diy project again paid from his pocket.
