  1. cost of replacing roof on a 451 coupe?

    smart General Discussion
    How much does it cost to replace the 451 coup clear roof? I was surprised none of the autoglass shops that do windshields could help with the SmartCar clear roof, but it’s polycarbonate after all, not glass, so it makes sense. But none of the body panels vendors seem to seek a roof either. Any...

    70,001 miles, 2013 Smart ForTwo Passion coup
  3. Averaging 52 mpg last 5 tanks

    smart Fuel Economy
    I'll try add to what I said below to say it has been mostly dry during these five tanks but there were 3-4 rainy days. I live in a small but steep canyon so my commute starts by descending the canyon and ends by climbing it. 90% of my Smart driving is the same daily commute so my results reflect...
  4. Averaging 52 mpg last 5 tanks

    smart Fuel Economy
    2013 Passion, c. 15k miles. Not sure what top tier fuel is. I used a Tesoro station for all of these recent fill-ups. I've used Chevron a lot too, and Holiday, which is a budget chain.
  5. Averaging 52 mpg last 5 tanks

    smart Fuel Economy
    Filled up today with 453 miles traveled, and 8.6 gallons went in the tank. 52.7 mpg. Tank was in reserve showing .2 gallons left when I filled up. I usually don't try to go past 400 but it's been clear lately the car will go further on a tank. My last five tanks have averaged about 52 mpg...
  6. Did my Smart burp?

    smart General Discussion
    Thanks for the good ideas. Yes, it could be washer fluid so I'll check that out. As well as check the coolant reservior cap for tightness. And make an appointment with the dealer.
  7. Did my Smart burp?

    smart General Discussion
    Noticed after I parked in the driveway last thursday some blue liquid had leaked from the left wheel well onto the driveway. About a cup of fluid. Sort of sticky like the blue fluid in the coolant reservior. Also the leak is directly below the coolant reservior. (So I think it is not from the...
  8. Word to the unwise: Getting your windshield replaced

    smart General Discussion
    I'm sold. But I haven't seen Safe-Lite around here. We have a lot of Diamond Glass franchises.
  9. Should I drive the Smart to the Mountains?

    smart General Discussion
    I drive at altitude in the Wasatch mountains a lot with no trouble. Not quite as high as Winter Park, but the smart does fine over passes of about 9,000 ft elevation. I never notice any loss of power as elevation changes and the computer seems to adjust mixture and timing just fine for the thin...
  10. No second key-need to get one

    smart General Discussion
    You're right; it's an outrageous price:eek: We've all complained about it and agree with you. This has been a frequent discussion on the forum and we've exhausted various options for getting keys. You'll see this in the other threads when you search. There's good info in there and reading it...
  11. Reasons why the English language is so hard to learn.

    Off-Topic Cafe
    We already did that. It was the reason given for changing the spelling of colour, honour, labour, centre, theatre, etc. Also to reduce these perceived overt remnants of French language influence in English. Also for nationalist reasons to differentiate American English from standard English...

    Good to know. Thanks
  13. Alternator seems to have died (broken belt)

    smart General Discussion
    Glad your engine didn't get a chance to suffer any over-heating from this. If you do this fix, spacing out the alternator, we'd love to see a write up with pictures. And details on the stronger V-belt to install.
  14. 2013 base radio won't recognize my iPhone 1 with iOS 3.x

    smart General Discussion
    Ahh. In that case I don't need to worry about the iPhone. When you point out it reads the FAT32 file system I realized it would read any thumb drive. Should have known, I guess, but had never occurred to me. I thought it had to read an mp3 player of some kind, not just stored mp3s. Anyway. I...
  15. 2013 base radio won't recognize my iPhone 1 with iOS 3.x

    smart General Discussion
    Thanks. Have you had information about that from smart? just curious. I've considered using the headphone jack and will if I have to on a longer trip. In the meantime the USB cable connection is so handy because you don't have to touch the mp3 player--just do everything from the radio controls...

  19. 2013 base radio won't recognize my iPhone 1 with iOS 3.x

    smart General Discussion
    I was sure you were wrong Andy because I thought I remembered connecting my iPhone 4. So I went and checked with my new iPhone 5 and an older 2s. None would connect, even trying different USB cables. The iPod still connects just fine. What is it with iPhones that the radio can't recognize...
  20. 2013 base radio won't recognize my iPhone 1 with iOS 3.x

    smart General Discussion
    2013 base radio won't recognize an iPhone via USB Thought I'd use an older iPhone as a USB-connected iPod with my 2013 base radio. But the radio says "device unavailable". This led me to check to see if other iPhones would connect via USB and they don't. My iPod has no trouble connecting...
