Smart USA has listened to the complaints and critics of it's automated manual hybrid slushbox drive device transmission. It's a major sore spot for a lot of owners, as its operation is less than smooth. Allegedly, Smart is sending out letters to owners letting them know that there's a free software upgrade they can take advantage of that is intended to smooth things out. There will be 24,622 2008MY Smarts eligible for the upgrade. Hydrostatic upgrade not available.
