My Buddy just bought a used 2014 Smart ED about 10 months ago and the Dealer he bought he bought it from is saying your car is clear but I called MBFS and they say Battery Assurance plus is active on this VIN number the person at MBFS says they will go after the original buyer of the Smart ED and take them to small claims court for the 5,010.00 . He didn't say if my buddy drives off into the sunset or not without paying anything . The dealer never disclosed this Battery Assurance Plus thing I figured it out when I wanted a Smart ED . So now I went back to the dealer and now the Smart ED I wanted to buy is on a hold possibly because MBFS found out this dealer is not disclosing about BAP . Will keep people informed here what happens in the long run . To all who are reading this if you see a Smart ED for 5999.00 like I did please run the Vehicle ID Number or VIN with MercedeS Benz Financial Services . I have run 3 VIN numbers all say BAP is active .So the cost of this car is not the advertised 5999.00 just add another 5 k to the price Some of these dealers do not know what they are doing in regards to this particular car .
