Good Value but irritating
"Service and MOT completed without incident and drama and by booking online was hassle free. Minor grumbles: 1. Received a text message the night before asking when I would be dropping off the car? Not really an issue but an irritation nevertheless 2. On dropping off & booking in attempts were made to sell me additional services. Very gentle and certainly non threatening but irritating 3. The cars were dropped off at 08:15 and I had to ring for a progress report at 16:00. I was give a time that the car would be ready and I turned up at the stated time. On both occassions the car was not ready and I was asked to wait for work to be be completed. Very irritating Will probably use the garage again in the hope that the experience will be better next time"

Your car's gearbox is a complex mechanical system that transmits the power from the engine firstly to the drive shafts and then to the wheels. A manual gearbox experiences more wear and tear over time than most other parts of your car, due to the heat and friction produced by its many moving parts and components.
And of course it is the gearbox that allows you to accelerate from stationary to speed as you move up through the gears - not to mention allowing you to go backwards into that tight parking spot!
Although gearboxes are designed to carry the enormous loads caused by transmitting the engine's power, some wear is inevitable. Mostly, the gearbox will still work with some wear, but occasionally problems can occur.
From time to time, you should have the gearbox oil checked, and changed if necessary. We can help you find a garage near you to do this.
If your gearbox is not looked after, major issues are bound to arise. You should always get any worrying symptoms checked out by a professional as soon they develop.
Smart Automobile is a company headquartered in Böblingen, Germany, that has marketed a range of microcar and subcompact vehicles. Marketed in 46 countries across Asia, North and South America, Africa, Australia and Europe, the design concept for the company's automobiles was first developed at Mercedes in the early 1970s and in the late 1980s. It was quite a lengthy gestation period, and the first model was finally launched by Daimler-Benz in 1998. Several variants on the original design have been introduced, with the original two-seater (called the Fortwo) now in its third generation and the Smart now being available as a fully electric offering.
The brand name Smart derives from its early cooperative studies with Swatch and Mercedes: Swatch Mercedes ART - although we have to say, it does make it a bit difficult to search online with a name like that! Overall, it is a very specialised company that builds ultra-compact cars, designed to carry up to four passengers through congested city streets with ease.
