Hello from Columbia SC

My wife has had two SMART cars. The first one was t-boned by a young driver that drove through a stop sign at 50-60MPH. Everyone was good and so my wife purchased a second one. She loves the car. But now we are having a mechanical issue. The motor for the radiator cooling fan seems to be toast. We do not have a stealership in Columbia that sells or fixes them, and I am not sure I can make it to Charleston or Charlotte. Does anyone know anyone local that will fix them? This is probably an easy fix if you have the lift and the time.

unfortunately, I have googled it. And there is a thread on this site about the problem and it requires a complete tear down of the front end, and the removal of coolant and A/C. I have the ability to do the work but I just do not have the time and time is one thing I can not get more of.

This thread is three years old. Wonder what the outcome was?

Nice to hear a good report about the Charleston dealership. They didn't make a very good first impression with me. When I was looking to buy my first Smart electric, I spoke with a rep on the phone and told her I was concerned about being able to get the car home, since I am about 120 miles away. I was hoping that maybe she would offer to have it delivered to me, but instead she told me that I could stop halfway home and fill the car up with gas and I'd be fine.

They offered to deliver our electric. It wouldn't be free of course.

Yep, that's the place - very nice experience - felt like I stole that car.
