Feldmann's WILL be taking over smart sales

I was speaking to a Feldmann's employee, who told me that they will be taking back the smart dealership from Luther. Apparently that's the word in their office, and wasn't marked confidential; so it was OK to me to post when I asked.

The sales and service will be from the Mercedes dealership, and not in the old smart center. Apparently, aside from being very expensive to maintain, part of the roof collapsed.

I don't know when it'll happen; hopefully they still have the service records.

Did it show signs of crazing before it collapsed?

(Sorry... I couldn't resist.)

Does anyone know if other MB dealers will also handle smarts? I am wondering in particular about Maplewood Imports?

We are patiently waiting on the word from MB on the smartUSA marketing plan within or around the MB dealerships. Updates on the general transition will be in the transition sub-forum when available.

I'm wondering about MB Memphis.
I emailed and got an automatic response saying they would get back to me once they gathered research information for a response. I guess they are still gathering.

All we need to do is get some glue to put the roof back on
