OK, so at some point we all are new to smart interest and ownership. To help navigate an overwhelming wealth of information provided and directed to by this site, I've put together an:

Online Starter Kit
About my smart:

Correction: most of the above is no more accessible. But many manuals and service's check lists are available at:

How safe is my smart?

smart transmission & shifting:

How do I get better mileage?

How do I maintain/service/fix my smart?

Best Help is by Searching/Asking:

from a harley, to a smart. what a trip!

I was a biker for 18 years. Fear of driving a large car, and poor eyesight kept me from ever geting my class c. then came LASIC surgery.my sight was fixed. vision now 20/30 up from 20/400 befor. But fear had a strong hold, especialy after years of not being seen on my little sportster. Then the day came when I saw my 1st fortwo. I will share more later if anyone is interested, I can be long winded, but a slow typist

Tying down a Smart in garage of a Renegade garage motorhome? BEST METHOD?

We recently purchased a Smart and would like to tie it down in the garage of our 45' Renegade motorhome (10' garage) while traveling. The garage does already have metal bars/strips attached to the floor. Any ideas what the best method would be? And hopefully the easiest.
I'm pretty sure I will get no replies to this post as I might be in the middle of someone elses post as no headline comes up.

You'll probably do better posting your question in the towing forum:

Newbie from Georgia

Drove my new Smart off the lot last week. Still on my first tank of gas and trying to figure out a cute wrap to put on it. It's so fun to finally have a car just for me after 20+ years of minivan mania driving three sons around. Encouraged that the DIY oil change sounds like something I could actually do. This website has a wealth of information! :D

Hello everyone

We just bought a passion convertible today and I got to drive it home! What a cute car!!!! I just love the look of it and it really handled well. I'm still getting used to the paddle shifters but I think I'll conquer that by tomorrow! I'm looking forward to many years with my new toy!
