Hello everyone!
We are thinking to move to different state. The town we will be living is a small town where there's no Mercedez Benz dealership/service centre. Where I usually take my smartie for its annual maintenance.

Has anyone ever had this issue before? And how do you do your annual maintenance?
Can I do oil change in regular oil change places?

Thank you in advance for any responses!

You should not have a problem finding a place to do oil changes. The issue you might run into is many mechanics are “afraid” of the Smart because it’s so unique. If you show a mechanic the videos that are available on-line for most service your car will need, I would think most would be willing to tackle the routine maintenance issues. You may find that most of the issues are easy enough you can tackle them yourself. If you are interested in making it easer, there is a free app called Blue Care that pulls many of the videos together and organizes them in the “tutorial” section so you don’t have to hunt for them yourself.

For tires, you may need to order them, but any Walmart will install and maintain the tires with the added bonus that if you run into a problem while out of town, any Walmart will honor the warranty.

Could always try changing the oil yourself. It isn't that hard, and the satisfaction from knowing it's been done right is hard to beat. Get a friend to help the first time if you're unsure.
