Does anyone know of a qualified Smart Car service center, or mechanic, in Honolulu, that can do a simple tuneup on my Smart ForTwo?

I have zero confidence in the local Mercedes dealer.

I brought my vehicle in for a simple 10k check and the promised time was 11am, actual completion time was 1:30pm.

Worse yet, they tried to hit me up for some additional unnecessary services. The car only had 3,500 miles on it, yet tire rotation and fuel injection services were recommended.

Tire rotation - exactly how did they propose to do that? :)

Unless they carry the smart brand and have trained smart techs, the average Mercedes dealer has zero idea of what to do with the smart. If by tuneup you mean brakes, oil and filter, plug change, etc. - any good shop can handle that. You may have to help them track down the correct parts put there's plenty of info on SCoA about that. smart USA has some useful DIY info for owners: http://owners.smartusa.com/

You might check out these shops also: http://www.benzshops.com/near/honolulu-hi/

Yes. They said I should rotate the tires. Since the front and rear tires are different, that would have been interesting. That is one of the reasons I have no confidence in their abilities. Thanks for your recommendations.
