I drive a 2008 Smart for two Passion. I've learned about not leaving the lights in auto position when the car is off due to drain on battery. I've learned to fix the insulation that hangs low over the alternator. I have learned about the coolant hose that rubs on the metal and potentially cuts through. Any other surprises for the 2008 model I should now about? I'm thrilled to have learned about the above problems and have been able to fix them thus saving me a future headache. Thanks to all.
