Considering buying a 2014 used Smart Electric Drive. There is a local dealer that doesn't have certified technicians. Closest dealers with certified techs / Smart ED dealer is 120 miles away. :o

Would this be a deal-killer for you? Could I take the car into the local dealer for brakes and so forth, do some of the maintenance myself (I've read the regular preventive maintenance is simple, I'm pretty handy) and maybe tow the thing into the dealer with my truck for battery work? I hear there is an aftermarket battery monitoring gizmo that you can build (Yeah, if it can be built, I could build one) is that good enough if I don't have BAP?

I do not know yet if I will find a 2014 Smart ED with BAP that I'll have to pay for, or if the BAP will be retired (still trying to wrap my had around this) Will the BAP be void if I don't take it to the authorized dealer for scheduled battery checks?
