  8. Hat on Roof?

    smart General Discussion
    Hi I have a two-part question: I know that you can't put a roof rack on a smart, but is there a weight limit for what you can put on it? I want to put a top hat, about three feet high, on top. It will be for just an hour or so. Does anyone have any suggestions for constructing something like...
  9. Fixing Roof Sun Shade

    smart General Discussion
    So the fabric onthe roof sun shade started to pull away from the plastic pull thing at the leading edge. Turns out it is only glued to the plastic thing (is that smart?) I took it down and was able to re-glue the fabric to the plastic, but it was a PITA to put the thing back together and now it...

It is the one with the black composite roof and not the panoramic transparent roof. 1 week before I hit my 24,000 Warranty expiration, I was washing the car and noticed some small hairline cracks in the black roof panel. One of them is about 18 inches long, and...

    We have automatic toll paying here in the Lone Star State. Formerly called either "DOT tags" (with which I started, back in the early 1990's) or "EZ Tags" (the version that the general public used), they have since morphed into something called the "TexTag", allowing us to zip around any of the...
  20. IIHS finally starts testing roof crush

    The Car Lounge
    Interesting video from IIHS below. They have started using the roof crush as a standard test in their ratings system. I think this is long overdue, as a lot of cars perform really poorly in this type of crash. Just look at how the Hyundai does in comparison to the Tiguan. It would be...
