  3. Word of warning!

    If your car is in for a service etc. and you have the cloth mesh seats then insist that a seat cover is used. Too late for me I'm afraid and I now have 2 hitches in the seat from either a trouser seat, the head of a vacuum hose etc..? Can't prove it of course but they weren't there beforehand!!

  4. Tomtom estimated time of arrival

    My wife picked up an Edition White a few months ago. All is good and a vast improvement on the Passion Cabrio we had 15 years ago, now having a daughter the back seats are also useful. Averaging close to 40mpg on largely school run rush hour trips. The only issue I can't resolve is with the...

  5. 2 questions if i may please... 4/4 Edition #1 2015

    1. I notice that the new Smarts have an electronic MPH indicator within the dashboard menu. Does anyone know if a plug in to the Mercedes/Smart updates will make this facility possible on my 2015 model? 2. I have the orange interior - how do other owners clean/remove stains from the orange mesh...

  6. Super Unleaded and running in?

    I picked up my new Forfour 0.9 turbo auto on Friday and noticed by chance when I was looking at the specs that it said to use Super Unleaded. Just as well as I would have put the regular unleaded in it. Got to fill it up later this week for my first drive down the motorway to visit family in...

  7. Which model to go for?

    Hello. I have fallen love with the Forfour and went for a test drive yesterday. I want to buy a new one but cannot decide whether to go for 1.0l prime or 0.9 turbo with more horsepower. I live in a hilly area but was surprised by the 1.0l which I test drove as it was better than I thought after...

  8. Smart ForFour Edition Black 66 plate

    Hi All, Being this my first ever smart just wanted to share a couple of issues, to see how normal are they or not. Tried to search the forum but couldn't find similar experiences. 1 - MPG wise seems to be far so far from what they advertise, have 3500 miles on the clock and cant seem to get...

  9. Exclamation distance to empty indicator

    2016 Smart ForFour Proxy I know that there is a warning light that shows when your tank has less than a gallon left in it, but does anyone know if there is a setting to tell you how many miles you have left before empty? My previous cars (non-Smart) had this and it would show about 320 miles left...

  10. Rusty Drive Shafts

    My Forfour is less than 12 months old and has less than 7500 miles on the clock. I recently looked under the rear of the car and was surprised to see that the drive shafts were very rusty. I would not have expected this on a car this young. Is this normal? Has anyone else noticed this on their cars?

  11. How many speakers in passion model?

    As per title. Given that the rear doors look like they have speaker grilles and there are 2 other grilles above and behind rear seats, I assumed that the forfour would at least have 4 working speakers but during a ride home tonight I sat in back while wife drove home and noticed no sound at all...

  14. Tweeter removal

    I've seen in c453 section there's a guide for removing / changing tweeters but the forfour is different as doesn't have a screw holding the cover in place and not enough room to slide cover up to release like on the fortwo. Has anyone removed the tweeter cover on the for four? , if so any advise...

  15. Knocking Steering on 2016 ForFour - Anyone Else?

    My wife's ForFour has had a knock on the steering for a while, sometimes more pronounced than others. We didn't worry about it as my E350 Mercedes has a very similar knock that the dealer said is perfectly normal. However, tonight on the way home it seemed much more pronounced on turning. ...

  16. Edition #1 roof lining, please check.

    I own a year old orange and black edition #1 and upon checking over the car prior to its first service I was horrified to find that the roof lining has developed a number of areas of staining particularly on the upper areas of the A pillar and around the map light switches etc. It can be best...

  18. Front wheel arch liner

    Does anyone know if there is a piece of arch liner missing in this photo? The three studs circled and the massive gap between the inner arch and the undertray make me think there should be an additional bit fitted. I can only find photos online of ForTwos and they look different. It's the same on...
