I'm bringing the car into a local import car shop to have the oil change I'm sure the dealer didn't put in mobil 1 and I want the coolant replaced being it's 4 years old and I see I'm going to need a battery cut off switch. I also purchased the car guard stone protector. My car will start in neutral is that not normal? Thanks for the info
Yes, our Smart Car will start with the shift in neutral. I installed an auxiliary braking system even though the Smart Car weighs in at 1,800 lbs. Some states require auxiliary braking systems for towed trailers and vehicles in excess of 2,000 lbs. If you put a few things in the Smart Car while it is being towed, the weight can quickly exceed 2,000 lbs.
