smart seats are a danger

when was the last time you sat in your set and tried to put your head against the headrest......in a hard rear end impact the head rest is useless as your head will travel 6 to 9 inches before it touches. enough to snap your neck or possibly paralyze you

no owners manual

the car did not come with one so i had to purchase one from a printer. I noticed in the fuse book schematic there is no description for fuses 21 thru 31 and on the back of the fuse panel there are 4 fuses with no description either. does anyone know what these are for?

power windows

thw windows work intermittently. sometimes they are auto and other times you have to manually control the stop/start, this may go for days at a time or may work normally the next time the car is started. any ideas?

First, welcome (again) to SCoA! Second, if you have multiple questions, please consolidate them into a single thread if possible.

I've merged your 13 threads into this one....:wink:

PS - it would help to post the trim level and year of your car.

a/c cooling fan

when in motion and running the a/c does the fan continue running say when driving on the highway or does it shut off like american cars fans do based on the vehicle speed sensor?

larger tires

i have always gone up one size in tires and it has always improved the ride. has anyone tried this.....the ride in these cars is just so harsh. i could run over a dime and tell you what coin it was.....well almost anyway

I hate to say it, but I think they all do have the lazy retractors. My Smartie only has about 1000 miles, and the driver's side has to be coaxed into it's retractor.
