I was born in Madison and was forced to move to IL. No worries though, when I move out, I will be going to the University of Wisconsin. I am a cheesehead and even though I live in IL. I love my homestate!

newest Madison area smart

Picked ours up on Friday.


Drove to Madison to my Wife’s office so she could do the final drive home after work.

Went up to give her the keys and she calls out amongst the cubicles "Who wants to see the new car" We emptied the office.

We had 15 engineers huddled around the car with all the usual questions.

We have only seen Smarts in Madison once or twice before this week. As my wife was pulling out of her office for the first time in her new yellow and black smart, a red one passed by. What are the odds?

This is exactly the kind of trip I would like to try and avoid. Driving 150 miles to check a code and rest a light for a lose gas cap is not very green.

When I asked at the smart center in MKE they said I could use a local Bergstrom service for things like this. I was hoping someone would have broken in a dealer like the Cadilac dealer since the Hummer dealer seems to have been emptied.

To Bad "Smart" cant just take over those "H" Buildings

smartHHO Well, I am a cheesehead in the fact that I am a FAN of GB packers. As for living there. Good luck with your car. Since you are in one of the slower dealership areas, most likely you will be waiting forever over the time most of us in say LA, NY or Austin area have been waiting.

So far, Austin area is approx 10 - 12 months tops for delivery.

Ordered mine Feb 2, 08 and should get it before Dec is out due to my DDE. I configured last month.

Good luck.

forestacademy Has anyone used any of the other Bergstrom service centers for there Smart here in WI? The Smart center told me we could expect to do this because MKE is not centraly located in the state.
