Just picked up my 2010 Smart and couldn't be happier. I love it! Brings new meaning to the words "fits and goes anywhere!". Already having my first issue with the flashing wrench at 7800 kms. I'm assuming it's warning me I'm due for my service A and I will endeavour to reset the flasher myself once complete. Hubby's going to attempt the oil change himself.

Anyway, happy to be here and want to extend a huge thanks to those of you who address the "quirks" in plain english. Makes life much easier when I know I don't have to panic. :eek:

Welcome, Leebee! I'm sure you'll be quite happy. In spite of occasionally negative comments here in our own dear enthusiast forum, in real life I've had more like 99% positive comments or smiles from people for over 8 months now. Besides the usual curiosity questions. I just changed my oil this weekend, it's definitely not hard. Resetting the maintenance counter is a pain, but you get it eventually. See posts 235 and 238 in this thread:

and head over to http://www.evilution.co.uk/681 and search on 'service reset' for a nice (and short) video about doing it. But the site is down at this particular moment - I was trying to find a direct link to the video.
Your hubby probably doesn't need it, but here also are instructions about changing the oil on our car:
