So here I am, in Plano TX and my ‘Smart’ car won’t unpark, won’t drive………..

wt27ns0YSGGAHIo89IuxCA_thumb_1efaI guess I should be happy that it happened while parked in a mall parking lot and not on the road coming here. I’d finished shopping and was on to my sisters house but it would not shift out of PARK.  Somehow I got her into drive and made it to Sher’s house but after that there was no way to get her moving again.

How embarrassing for her to be lifted up and towed to the mercedes dealership for assessment of the problem, I’m thinking transmission, I’d wondered if it was working properly seemed to work too hard to get to another gear.

And how scared I am with my bicycle size budget and the mercedes size bill I expect.  When I bought this Smart Car I was concerned about repair costs so I added every kind of protection I could, so far I think I’m only responsible for $300 deductable.

I’ve only had the car since February!  Any suggestions?  Should I let car max know about it? Shouldn’t they have made sure the transmission was in good condition when they sold it?  Did I do something to damage it?  It was super  on the highways but the roads here in Plano are terrible on  this little car, I feel every bump in the road.

Meanwhile here I am sitting in my son’s apartment trying to deal with car problem and my sister’s not feeling  good today.  Tomorrow I’ll get a rental becasue I think she will need to see her Doctor. Or maybe a different Dr. She has had to teach this young MD about all the problems she has had and he is lucky she is has not considered  sueing because she has cause over and over again. Can you imagine that this office continues to ignor her calls? I would think that they would bend over backwards to please her.

I end this note with a feeling of frustration for me and my sister.

  1. I’m so sorry you’re having all this trouble.
    Did you have a warrenty?
    I would definitely talk to the dealer, that’s only been a couple of months.
    Too bad doctors don’t come with warranties, sounds like the one she has is a lemon!!
    I hope you day gets better, you ask the car company to pay for the rental.
    Keep me posted.
    I’ll be praying for you.
