2005 Smart CDI Pure registered in Ontario, resides in Brighton MI.
Odometer 116000 km (less than 75000 miles).
CD player, no AC
The car drives, however the turbo needs replacement.
Maximum speed presently is 80 kph or 50 mph.
The car has been maintained by a mechanical engineer, always used Mobil 1 Euro grade with Mann filters.
It was my daily driver for 2 years and 50000 km.

I can bring the car back to Ontario if needed. Other than that, transport of the vehicle is up to the buyer. $3500

Are you certain the turbo is bad? According to Flossy the smart, a lot of turbos that were leaking oil, were not defective, but were leaking oil from a nearby location and the perfectly good turbo was replaced at great cost, needlessly. At the Dragon, Flossy the smart would sometimes go into limp mode and have a limited rev and top speed, (in this case possibly due to an unusual high altitude condition, apparently which was easily reset with a handy star machine. It helps to have a tech. with a good bit of experience with the smart CDI for an accurate diagnosis on these. I was impressed with Flossy the smart's knowledge and experience with his.
