    I'm sure I have read this somewhere but when you have your smart go into Mercedes for servicing they don't ever give you anything to show its been serviced at that time and milage.

    Hi all, Have upgraded my Forfour Prime Sport to a Brabus Xclusive. Loving it so far but a couple of problems have raised their heads. The passenger heated seat doesn't work, not an issue at this time of year and was planning to get it sorted in a few months. Unfortunately, it'll have to...

  8. Edition 1

    Hi smart fans, thinking of buying a used 15 plate edition 1 forfour and was wondering if there is much difference in headroom because of the panoramic sun roofs? . I've owned a forfour passion with no sun roof and head room was great in the front (I'm 6'4" by the way). Also what is included in...

  9. Smart once again let down by poor Mercedes Customer Service

    The Sat Nav on my Smart ForFour stopped working no screen display. I went into Smart/Mercedes Tamworth after some discussion between the reception and other members of staff. No one took the time to even briefly look at the car. Their suggestion was that I book the car in, the earliest date being...

  11. ESP Activation and Unstable at high speeds

    Hello Everyone, I just bought a 2015 W543 ForFour last week, maybe I am not used to Smarts, so I just want other users opinion. My ESP activates quite often while I am driving and brakes the car itself, I thought that would be because the rear tyres were already worn so I replace them for...

    My wife has a June 2016 Forfour Prime which has done 5,000 miles. Had problems with the EML coming on, took it to Listers in Lincoln and they diagnosed a stuck turbo actuator. They fixed that but a week later same problem, took it back and was told that the turbo had failed. This was on the...

  14. Retro Fitting a Tacho/clock....

    Hi all, Not really looking to change my 451 Cabrio just at the moment, but when the time comes I quite fancy a 453 Forfour....Specifically, a 1.0 Passion in black with Cadmium Red panels, or all black. This model seems to have everything I would be looking for, but I would like the combined...

  15. Eco meter shift stopped working

    Hi all - you know the economy thing that tells you how good (or bad in my case) you drive at the end of the journey? Well the top two meters still work but the 'Shift' indicator is always zero. I could have sworn that there were little arrows that guide you to shift up and down in the main wheel...

    Hi, picked up the car a week ago and love it, but have some questions I was hoping you could help with. Firstly, the manual and car (2015 Prime Premium Turbo) suggest I can download and install 'apps' to the media system. I can find no such apps on the internet, certainly the SMART website...

  17. Turbo

    Recently my wife was using our Forfour Edition#1 when 300 yards into the journey it started to make a noise "like pushing a lawnmower across a concrete path". We contacted the dealer who sent the AA, when they arrived, they plugged her in to find TWELVE faults on the system. The root cause seemed...

  18. Question Rough idling cause?

    My 2015 ForFour has a recent problem with rough idling. I've had a few days where pulling up at traffic lights it tries to idle but then cuts out? Now, I do short runs to work perhaps just 3 to 4 miles each way and given this time of year is it possible the battery is very low because it's not...
