If you traveled to Europe in the 1990s and early 2000s, you would have been both pleased and shocked at the Smart Car revolution that was taking place. The Smart Car is a purely-European concept that didn’t make its way to the U.S. until a few years into the 21st Century.
After only twenty-five thousand units were sold in the US the first year, each year after that has led to more and more popularity of the Smart Car. Those who live in progressive states like California and with owners who were tired of spending their hard-earned money on gas-guzzling SUVs, the Smart Car became the right vehicle at the right time. The only problem now is that the Smart Car was discontinued in the U.S., making it even more essential to have a mechanic who knows how to service one. For Pico Robertson area drivers that means turning to the experts at Carotech Automotive.
Expert Smart Car Service
Even the most well-engineered cars are mechanical and electrical in nature and will succumb to issues at some point in their future. The question is, when will that day come? For the Smart Car, the timing of this is determined by how well the car is maintained throughout its life.
With a simple design that is manufactured to save on gas in lieu of power and performance, the Smart Car is simple enough in its design to not have major issues if serviced regularly as per the manufacturer’s recommendations.
Skipping scheduled services and trying to save money by not bringing your Smart Car in for inspections is a sure way to reduce the life span. There is no reason a Smart Car won’t last a single owner for at least two or three decades with proper maintenance.
