Just what I have always wanted

I’ve wanted a smart car for 15 years and finally decided to purchase one as a second vehicle. Great little car. Perfect for running errands. A fun little car to drive

Misnomer

For something that is supposedly a gas sipper this thing is a joke. Luckily the price was enough that I didn't fall for it, quite expensive for what you're getting. I looked up the gas mileage on a fuel economy. Gov and I wasn't very happy. If your summer runt that's 5 foot tall and deliver pizzas inside the city limits of a 25 mile an hour Zone maybe this car would be okay. But if you want to take it on the road and bring it up to speed you feel like it's a coffin with wheels.

ALMOST BRAND NEW! ONLY 400 ACTUAL MILES

I’m a car collector so I bought this car for the very low miles. It’s better than day it drove brand new out of showroom! Even stills smells new! Chances are this is the lowest mile gas powered 2015 Smart Fortwo you could ever find for sale. Perfect car for towing behind motorhome, food delivery business, mobile billboard to promote your business, or just use for every day commute.
