We bought our first Smart in 2008...it shook so violently at speeds over 40mph we had to take it back..I know the car was new to the market then, I think they rushed it out with MANY problems...we had to go back to the dealer and ask them to replace it..they did, but they added that to my loan for the second car...the second car was ok but the loan was now very high, nearly $400 a month for 7yrs..I was too distracted as the recession hit us hard and we were scrambling to survive. We moved far away from the original dealership and the car died in 2012 while still paying the loan off...no service shops near us could diagnose or fix the car..it had to go back to the dealer only. I started reading online reviews abt the car..and that year...many people reported transmission problems..ours wouldn't go forward or in reverse..it could be a chip reset or transmission..but either way the tow truck, diagnostic fee and repair would be all on us...we couldn't afford all of that and we felt Smart should have RECALLED these cars. We got no help from the dealer, or the 800 numbers. My friend's car was purchased the same year and needed the same thing..a new transmission...a 4k repair. My loan over 7yrs was approx. 35k and now the car needed a 4k fix...the car isn't even worth 4k for resale. I am beyond disgusted and pissed. I am looking to take a law suit against Smart.
