    Anyone else with a new-style Smart-for-Two having problems with getting the fuel gauge to register the petrol tank as full.

  2. White edition limp mode on hills

    Hi all, My wife’s white edition has been back to Smart Ascot multiple times now for the same issue. When hitting traffic on hills, unless she puts it into neutral immediately, leaving in drive will bring on the engine warning light and it goes into limp mode which gradually corrects itself once...

  3. DAB option / upgrade

    I'm not (yet) the owner of a 453 but I'm hoping to get one (a forfour) in the near future (or at least, before they stop making the petrol models next year) but I've noticed that most 453s do not have the DAB option. Where it does, it can be - it seems - implemented with either the touch screen...

  4. Braking instability among other issues?

    Proxy 0.9 Turbo DCT 2016 3525 miles. Ever since I got this bloody thing I have always noticed that under 50% or more braking at 50-60MPH+ the rear end gets so titchy and light. There has been a number of occasions when I've had to slam my brakes and the rear end is seriously about to slide out,...

    Hey all, I'm reading that the current models of the smart Media System includes (or may include) Android Auto, and some articles mention Carplay coming too. Can anybody confirm this, and maybe say if this is backward compatible somehow? I drove a loan 2017 and noticed the interface is...

    Dash Handbrake warning light flickering.... quite random. I’m guessing first port of call will be a duff hand brake switch , I only noticed it this morning whilst sitting in the car (fully handbraked obviously with engine running) waiting for someone. It’s still under warranty , so no big...

  20. So what’s going on here!! 1.4mpg

    Had my ForTwo almost 5 months. I reset the trip when I initially picked it up. Which has pretty consistently shown 44.4mpg. I checked the trip again recently and it’s now showing 1.4mpg. Obviously there is an error/software bug here. Anyone else seen it? I’m loath to just ‘reset’ the trip as I...
