  1. Must i Service my 451 now or can i wait?

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Welcome - lots of threads addressing this - a search will bring them up. No need to disconnect the battery. Just go through the steps in one of those threads. Some of us have a lot of fun/frustration trying to reset the darn thing. Sometimes it resets the first time. Sometimes it takes MANY...
  2. Must i Service my 451 now or can i wait?

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    I have a Mercedes diesel and it seems like when I change the oil, it turns black as I'm pouring it in. That's the way it is with many diesels. It's soot, not dirt and if you are using the proper oil, you should not have any issues going a little longer. The only way you can tell if the oil is...
  3. What does your state charge to register an EV above the ICE normal fees?

    smart fortwo Electric Drive
    $130 extra here in NC, just up from $100 a couple of years ago. Sure I'd rather not pay it, but I see the reasoning behind it. Len 2014 EV Coupe 19,500 miles 2014 EV Cabriolet 15,500 miles
  4. 2016 453 Battery Change

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    So you are just going to change the battery for the heck of it? I usually shoot for ten years on my batteries. Agree with Oliver on the radio presets. Len
  5. Battery assistance plus program

    smart fortwo Electric Drive
    Might agree with you if you are buying a used EV Smart car, but of course the BAP is likely not an option there. However on my two Smarts, both bought new, I am happy so far that I did not opt for the BAP. I was confident that the four year factory warranty was sufficient. Will I still be...

  7. How to look up original window sticker

    smart Vehicle Marketplace
    I knew you had sold Mercedes, but for some reason I thought you no longer did. Nice to know that you still do. Did you happen to get a request from RickyM today for the window sticker? Also looking for the in service date to see when the warranty started. I've PM'ed you the VIN to pull it...

  10. How to look up original window sticker

    smart Vehicle Marketplace
    Mercedes used to provide window sticker copies, but they stopped doing that many years ago AFAIK. Don't know if they will provide data card or not. I've never needed to ask. If you kiss up enough, you might be able to get a VMI (Vehicle Maintenance Inquiry) which not only gives you the data...
  11. How to look up original window sticker

    smart Vehicle Marketplace
    I just sent you a PM. Now getting to it in this new format may be a challenge. Try hovering over your logo and clicking on it. That may take you to it. Otherwise play around with it a little and you will get to it. I don't think I've gotten a PM with this new format yet, so I'm just...

    PM me with the VIN and your e-mail address and I can at least get you the data card. Len
  13. Getting a new key just turned into a $1,300+ repair job due to SAM control unit.

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    I'm interested too. If the dealership caused this to happen, then I don't understand why it isn't going to be fixed on their nickel? Len
  14. How many kilometers (or miles) on your ED?

    smart fortwo Electric Drive
    That's fantastic Marc!! I think you may be the world leader? Love it if mine got that far - that would take about twenty years. Len 2014 EV Coupe 19,500 miles 2014 EV Cabriolet 15,000 miles

  16. Smart with "scissor" doors

    smart General Discussion
    Ran into a guy who had a 2008 or 2009 Smart. He has sold it, but showed me a photo of his old car. it had what I think are called "scissor" doors. They rotated up to open. Was that ever an option on any Smarts? Ah, I think Google answered the question for me...
  17. Well, it finally happened... (Vehicle Homepage)

    smart fortwo Electric Drive
    Just an FYI - a 14 mm allen also works great to R&R the desiccant cartridge and is typically easier/cheaper to find, maybe already have on hand. Also the cartridge can easily be changed without jacking up the car at all. I like the idea of just replacing the beads. That's probably the route...
  18. Just changed trans oil on my EV

    smart fortwo Electric Drive
    On an EV I'd probably never change it. The maintenance chart also does not mention the transmission fluid ever due to be changed. It doesn't really get any stress on it like a regular transmission does. Len 2014 EV Coupe 19,500 miles 2014 EV Cabriolet 15,000 miles
