2011 Smart FORTWO Engine Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Issue ID941410
 Internal NHTSA #10475775
 Model Year2011
 File date17/09/12
Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemThis car is just over a year old, only 24,928 miles on it. It will not come out of park. I called the smart dealership of buckhead, ga and they told me to try to "re-train" it by turning it on part way 3 times with my foot on the brake and then it would shift. Nope. I called them back up and they said that i was over my 24,000 mile warranty (even if only by 928 miles which is less than 2 weeks worth of driving for me) and because i did my oil changes somewhere else they won't do this as warranty work. (even though i told them i had the records!) how can a transmission fail within 24,000 miles! I am very upset i ever bought a smart car from these people. Who would allow this type of "quality" out there. This is the worst car i've ever owned! And i will be happy to tell everyone about all the issues i've had with this piece of garbage. I have a dodge ram that's 8 years old and has never had a problem! Bad smart car people!
