Greetings Everyone,

I just acquired my first Smart Car (2008 with 4,200 miles on it ). It is a Passion model, with all the bells and whistles. I got it from a car dealer buddy of mine for $12,500. I hope to get my wife to drive it rather than her Ford Explorer for the many, many short trips she takes daily. I figure the gas savings alone will practically pay for the car.

This is a great forum and am lucky to have found it. Does anyone have a list of the top 20 most important things to know for new owners? (Do's and Don't's). A little knowledge can go a long way :cool:

Thank you in advance and I am glad to be part of the Smart group. So far, I am extremely impressed with the technology of this car. It truly is a smart car.

Warmest Regards,
Bill

Welcome aboard. You should contact the dfw smart club. A very active group and you can get a lot of information from other owners at the meet and greets. Best of luck. Let the fun begin

Welcome to smart ownership! You'll really enjoy your new smart. Im not sure if you have a local high performance parts company in Texas, but may I refer you to visit smartmaddness.com.. Lots of aftermarket customization!

Enjoy!

1. For long trans and clutch life be sure your car is fully stopped when shifting between forward and reverse.

2. Read and post often on this forum. :D

:welcome: wdfreemanjr !!! :woohoo:

You have now entered into the asylum, but you need to dig further to reach the "inner sanctum" :)

I know you are enjoying your smart, as are the rest of us, and hope you have many, many miles of smiles :D

If you're so inclined, we can always use another smart on Fuelly | Share and Compare Your MPG :wink:
